You're Grounded Forever...But First Let's Go Shopping

Mother's everywhere are going to want to pick up a copy of You're Grounded Forever...But First Let's Go Shopping. This book takes you on a journey no matter the age of your daughter, in fact it could be as close to a handbook as you are going to find.

Susan Shapiro Barash takes Mothers through common challenges and offers guidance and solution. Such as:
  • Defending our Daughters: Mothers tend to absolve daughters rather than face the problem.
  • Lacking Limits: Mothers report major confusion over who is in charge.

  • Being Critical of your Daughter’s Appearance: Mothers report over emphasizing beauty.

  • Making too Much of Food and Dieting: Mothers and daughters both wrestle with this issue.

  • Romantic Lives: Daughters consider their mothers sexless and clueless.

  • Fostering Independence: Mothers often hold their daughters back even with the best of intentions.
As many of you know I have a soon to be 3 year old daughter and now that I have read this book I worry more about things I never thought about. The book is an eye opener to all Moms no matter the age of your daughter. Up to this point of my parenting I have just worried about if she is doing well in school, is she making friends, keep up with other kids her age. Never once did I take time to age her in my mind and now that I have I am happy to have this book to refer back to. I even let my Mom borrow my copy earlier this week, when she finished she said "all they things you read about in this book and worry about facing one day your daughter will worry about when she becomes a Mom" Which makes perfect sense.

You're Grounded Forever...But First Let's Go Shopping became available this week, so if you are at your favorite bookstore this weekend take a look and let me know what you think.


Thank you to Mediamuscle for my copy of the book!
