Where has My Little Girl Gone?

by Tanith Carey


Price: £7.99
Published:Summer 2011
The author of this book is a seasoned journalist, already writing for a variety of magazines and newspapers, including the Guardian, the Independent and the Daily Mail, in which this well-researched how-to book has been serialized. Tanith Carey writes that celebrity children such as Suri Cruise, designer brand names, social networking sites like Facebook, game consoles, mobile phones, the internet, easy access to porn and lewd music videos have created a generation of girls who are old before their time. She encourages parents to talk frankly to daughters about sex and complain to broadcasters about unsuitable violence in popular shows such as Waterloo Road Ė adding that big corporations hate bad publicity. She says that many mothers donít kick up a fuss because they are afraid to appear politically incorrect and mentions the name Mary Whitehouse more than once, but stresses that a daughter is not a confidante, or a best friend, but an ultimate responsibility. This is a refreshing and honest book which should be on the shelf of every mother and mother-to-be.
