From the cradle to college, tell your daughters the truth about life before they believe the culture's lies. For mothers with girls newborn to eighteen, Five Conversations You Must Have with Your Daughter is simply a must-have audiobook. Youth culture expert Vicki Courtney helps moms pinpoint and prepare the discussions that should be ongoing in the formative years. To fully address the dynamic social and spiritual issues and influencers at hand, several chapters are written for each of the conversations, which are: 1. You are more than the sum of your parts. 2. Sex is great... and worth the wait. 3. It's OK to dream about marriage and motherhood. 4. Don't be in such a hurry to grow up. 5. Girls gone wild are a dime a dozen - dare to be different. The audiobook also includes invaluable tips on having each conversation across the various stages of development: five and under, six to eleven, twelve and up.

I bought this book without knowing that it should have been "5 Conversations You Must Have With Your Daughter - from a Christian Mom's Perspective". The conversations are on topics we all need to discuss with our daughters, but when the reason for "being virtuous" is because "that is God's way", I ended up fast-forwarding through that chapter. I didn't the narrator's tone of voice - it was very authoritarian and preacher-like. I'll probably not buy books narrated by this person. However, I thought the advice was good and Vicki Courtney reveals her challenges with her own children, so the reader felt like the advice came from someone who did experience the struggles that we all go through in raising our daughters.

I do!!!! This is a must for anyone with a young lady in the house
The honesty of the author - sharing her own challenges as mother and as being a woman herself
She is sincere
Laugh and cry. Regocnising myself touched deeper than I thought it would. Never had conversations like this with my mother and it is a gift being able to equip myself to treasure conversations like this with my beautiful 16 year old daughter
Mothers!!!! Listen to this!!!
The title and description of this book never mentioned that the author spent many years ministering to christian teens. Nor does it mention God or Christians once - but once you open the book you are assaulted by these Godly points of view. I would not have read it, if I had realized this.
The title and cover of the book should have announced that I was walking in to be counseled by a GOOD CHRISTIAN MARRIED MOTHER who values purity and modesty at a very high level. Personally I hate the word purity. I think it causes many women to have problems with accepting the sexual being they are. I think it serves to control women and passes out large doses of shame that tends to affect women for large portions of their life.
Vicki writes with excellent points and backs them with numbers. I found this refreshing and yet another way to illustrate to (my daughters and others) the importance of all of these issues.

There was definitely some good advice in this book that I will take from this but overall there was way too much religion for my liking. Forget the book and just go to church and you'd get the same thing out of it.
This book took all parenting away from the parent and dumped all responsibility in the hand of God as if to say I don't have to do a thing because whatever God wants is already pre-determined.
As a good Christian, I take the lord's lead and teach what I know is right. Showing the Lord down someone's throat is not parenting.
How can I get my money back.
