Synopsis:


These ten simple truths can build onebigchange in your daughter’s life.
When Kari Kampakis wrote a blog post in July 2013 titled “10 Truths Young Girls Should Know,” the post went viral and was shared more than 65,000 times on Facebook. Obviously her message strikes a chord with moms and dads across the country. This nonfiction book for teen girls expands on these ten truths andbrings a Christian messagetothe hearts of both moms and daughters.
Teen girls deal daily with cliques, bullying, rejection, and social media nightmares. Kari Kampakis wants girls to know that they don’t have to compromise their integrity and future to find love, acceptance, and security. Her ten truthsinclude:
  • Kindness is more important than popularity.
  • People peak at different times of life. Trust God’s plan for you.
  • Get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Otherwise, you’ll never stick to your guns.
  • Today’s choices set the stage for your reputation.
  • You were born to fly.
Fans of Kari's blog and newspaper column will not want to miss her first book. Filled with practical advice, loving support, and insightful discussion questions,10 Ultimate Truths Girls Should Knowis a timely and approachable list of guidelines that will help young girls navigate a broken world and become the young women God made them to be.



My Take On This Book:

The book contains thought provoking questions, which are a great opportunity to talk with your kids about the real truths on growing up with and without a bully or two in their life at such a young age. It would be great for a small group discussion in Sunday School or other activities they may be involved with, maybe Girl Scouts, Brownies, etc. The 10 areas covered in this book are popularity, confidence, reputation, interacting with boys, self-worship, perseverance, patience, image, inner beauty, and self-talk. It's written in a friendly, conversational style and has discussion questions, relevant scripture, and fun quizzes to see where the teens are in terms of responding in a healthy way to some situations. I cannot recommend this book enough. The 10 truths hit the nail right on the head with what we need to ingrain in our girls, even before they are 'tested' in the Junior High and High School years.

I received this book free from Thomas Nelson part of the Book Look review bloggers program, for my honest and un-biased opinion.

I gave it *****
