    "Best book for mom's of daughters that I have read"

    This book is absolutely fantastic! I have a 12 yr old daughter who is struggling with her friendships and listening to the book helped me understand "girl culture" as I never did before. I felt like I should have been taking notes throughout the entire book. Great advice for helping my daughter and myself to become more emotionally aware and authentic in our relationships with others. I highly recommend this book!

    "excellent narration - great for audio listening"
    Did The Curse of the Good Girl inspire you to do anything?

    After listening to the book... I was inspired to listen more and advise less as "girl stuff'" came up with my daughter. The tools in this book helped guide me in my understanding of what my daughter is experiencing... and provided good fodder for questions to ask her to help her better explain and understand the issues she's facing herself.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to parents to girls ages 10 to 18ish.
