Pro-Girl Book Part 11, The Perfect You

last2.jpeg

last2 1.jpeg

It's been my pleasure to share Ainsley, Perfect You with my Empowering Girls: So Sioux Me readers.

You may have different ideas about religion or God or the nature of the Universe. You may have alternative views about education. Your child will have different attributes and characteristics, and your worries about your children and their development may be different from my own.

Still, with editing and creativity you can make a book for your own child that will counter the onslaught of negative media and marketing our kids face today.

you have plenty of time to create a book of your own for Christmas using your favorite digital photo website like Mypublisher.com.

Sign up for the Empowering Girls: So Sioux Me RSS Feed and bookmark this website so you don't miss more great tools to empower girls.

We'll be discussing some difficult and complex issues shortly, as I've recently finished So Sexy So Soon, the new book about why our kids' media has suddenly become so inappropriately hyper-sexual. I've also interviewed Rosalind Chait Barnett, PhD a nationally recognized expert on the impact of gender on work, school and other environments, and Emily J. Martin, a principal in an American Civil Liberties Union lawsuit charging same-sex public schools with discrimination.

Please leave comments so I know you're out there. I often wonder what everyone else thinks and comments are the only real indication I have of who you are and what you believe. What you think is important to me. I don't have all the answers. I have some ideas and a lot of questions.

Here's the rest of Ainsley, Perfect You:

Tracy- Thanks for sharing your book. I read (but don't comment) often. I do want to make a book for each of my girls...it might have to be for birthdays versus christmas (time crunch). I am interested in the book review...almost bought it myself. Rhonda

Thanks for commenting Rhonda.

I totally get what you mean about birthdays - it is less overwhelming if you spread the work load over birthdays.

So Sexy So Soon is very intense. My review will probably be another series because it's very in-depth and complicated. Not very easy to write for sure. A lot of emotional issues involved.

I'm glad you're interested in hearing about it.

Thank you for sharing! It's a great idea and I enjoyed reading. I'd like to make one for my daughter, but since she's only two I haven't decided if I should wait or make a sort of "extended version" starting with pictures from infancy...

Tracee said...

Anna - you can make your daughter more than one for different age levels. They are only $30 and you probably have plenty of digital photos that need a productive place to live.

I am so stealing this for my step-daughters 12th b-day. Thank you for the idea. I wanted to get her something special. She has been so down lately.

I started writing for Caitlin back when you posted the first part of this series. I'll probably put it on my blog too when it's done. It's a lovely idea :) I want to do the same for my two boys as well and I hope to get hubby involved in the process.

Fantastic Mim - so glad to hear it.
