Information on the book:

ARE WE CREATING OUR OWN MONSTERS?

The Present and Future for Mothers and Daughters

New Book Reveals the Intricacies and Challenges of the Mother/Daughter Bond

  • Why is it that whether a daughter is three or thirty, mothers second guess their mothering abilities?
  • Why is there such tension even in the best of mother/daughter relationships?
  • Why do you avoid confrontations with your daughter at any cost?
  • Why is it so difficult to set limits with daughters of any age?

Expectations for mother-daughter connections are greater than ever before, especially because these already volatile relationships are set against a backdrop of today’s technological, media-saturated, celebrity–driven culture, where traditional values are entwined in the newest trends.

As a mother to two daughters Susan Shapiro Barash, Gender studies professor and women’s issues author remarks, “I, like most mothers, have caved in to their needs, jumped through hoops and wished I had a magic wand to set the world straight for them. At the same time, I was hearing mothers everywhere voice their anxieties– asking the haunting question, had their decisions and guidance been helpful or a hindrance in the long run?”

An eye-opening study of mothers and daughters of all ages, You're Grounded Forever...But First, Let's Go Shopping: The Challenges Mothers Face with Their Daughters and Ten Timely Solutions (St. Martin’s Press; October 1, 2010; $24.99) takes an unprecedented look at motherhood for young, teenage and adult daughters today.  It explores the major issues facing mothers with daughters and offers ways to improve matters. 
I had the pleasure of reading a book by author Susan Shapiro Barash entitled You're Grounded Forever...But First, Let's Go Shopping: The Challenges Mothers Face with Their Daughters and Ten Timely Solutions.  Being the mother of one girl and three boys, I found this book very insightful.  I like how it starts off saying how different it is raising a girl from a boy...I am finding this very true!  The book is very insightful and examines the very difficult task us mothers face when raising a daughter.  It is a harsh reality that we try to give our children more than what we ever had and make excuses for them so that they don't face the same fate that we did.  It is geared towards a mothers relationship with her daughter, but I found I could relate this to my relationship with my boys as well.  The chapters cover everything from being materialistic to making excuses.  I loved this book and I plan to reference it for years to come as I inevitably will question decisions that I have made and am making. This book is outlined perfectly for me to turn to in that moment of despair.  This book is laid out in a different fashion than I am used to...it's more of a study and the findings, but I liked that about it.  I found myself in the shoes of many of the people involved in the study and it made me feel less guilty about the decisions I have made - it was great to see that I am not alone!  I would recommend this book to any mother with a daughter.  Buy it on Amazon!
