A booklet to help parents cope with that dreaded Generation Gap
It is often difficult for caring, loving parents to give good and sensible advice that will be accepted by their beloved teenaged daughters. In parallel often there is a different, more relaxed type of bond of affection and trust between grand parents and their grand children. I am a grand father and so with this special bond in mind I have written a reader-friendly booklet for the benefit of all special grand daughters no matter where they live in the world, and they all are special even though they are often led to believe that they are not special. Below for your interest I have listed the chapters and the flavour that each chapter contains. Obviously advice verbally given face to face could have the negative confrontational effect, even from grand parents. The same advice offered from a booklet read in the privacy of the princess’s bedroom could gently widen a daughter’s outlook on life. The books and magazine shops are crammed with advice for teenagers about cosmetics, fashion, and the latest gadgets. Advice about sex, looking sexy, and the physical body is there in abundance. This booklet helps teenaged girls to value, protect, and cherish their individual uniqueness.
