Your Daughter Needs a Hero is an eye-opening book for Christian parents. It helps parents to understand and deal with their teenaged girl's insecurities and poor body image. Furlough's own past experience and her work as a Youth Minister comes through as she implores parents about the importance of understanding their daughter's world. She quotes Bible scriptures throughout the book and also stresses how a relationship with God will help in parenting daughters through the turbulent teen years.
Truly the work of parents is not easy, but we can make such a difference in the lives of our daughters in helping them understand that they are beautiful and loved by God. Furlough stresses this. She also speaks openly about her and her family's spiritual journey and the changes this brought in their lives. Sometimes, I would have preferred more case studies and less preaching though. Overall, Christian parents will appreciate this thought-provoking and timely advice on how to be your daughter's hero.
