Girls Uninterrupted - Tanith Carey

Padded bras for seven-year-olds, dolls dressed in high heels and pole dancing kits for pre-teens. From every angle, our daughters are being bombarded by messages about looks and sexuality that they are too young to understand. Even primary school girls feel pressured to conform to a thin, ‘sexy’ ideal, leading to self-destructive behaviour, ranging from anxiety and low self-esteem to eating disorders and self-harm.
But while girls are fast-tracked through childhood, parents' concerns are being drowned out by the internet, retailers, the media and peer pressure. And even though a furious debate is still raging about why it’s happening and who’s to blame, so far there has been no practical help for parents on how to fight back against the Lolita Effect.

Now parenting author Tanith Carey, herself the mother of two young girls, has written the first hands-on guide for parents which will show you how to:
• screen out damaging messages about body image and sex from the internet and media
• build up your daughter's self-esteem so she is strong enough to deal with the pressure to behave older than her years
• say the right things at the right time so she is inoculated against the worst influences of the X-rated society

Packed full of insights, experts’ tips and real experiences, “Girls Uninterrupted” is an essential and timely guide to safeguarding your daughter’s childhood - so she can grow into the healthy, confident woman she deserves to be.
