5.0 von 5 Sternen The Tips Every Parent of a Young Daughter Needs to Help Her Grow Up Strong! 8. Dezember 2013
Von Lori Day - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
With Melissa Atkins Wardy’s "Redefining Girly," we have one more excellent tool for parents who are desperate for ways to push back against the stereotyped and sexualized messages that bombard girls every day. While there are other books on this topic, this one focuses heavily and extremely helpfully on the everyday issues that parents must face while raising girls in a culture that makes them grow up too soon, targeting them with media and products that undermine healthy emotional, physical and intellectual development by telling little girls that they should be beautiful and sexy above all else. Wardy’s candid and tested advice about navigating gendered birthday parties; avoiding sexualizing dolls and other gifts from well-meaning friends; handling trips to the pediatrician’s office that end up reinforcing girly-girl culture rather than affirming the individuality of each child; and guiding girls to select Halloween costumes that let them be children…all of these situations and so many more are discussed clearly and pragmatically. Parents are given sample language to use in different environments that help them communicate their values to the other important adults in their daughters’ lives. With "Redefining Girly," perhaps a tipping point will soon be reached as parents become more skilled at giving corporations the message that the disempowerment of girls for their own profit will no longer be tolerated. Let this book be your guide. Bravo Ms. Wardy!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A go-to handbook for raising girls 13. Dezember 2013
Von Andrew Segall - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Melissa Wardy's new book Redefining Girly is destined to become a go-to handbook for parents and guardians raising girls. I wish it had been available ten years ago when I started raising my oldest daughter. The book combines actionable tips with highly relatable stories and insights. Although the subject matter is substantial, the book reads quickly, allowing the readers to digest the material easily. Whether you are new to the girl empowerment movement or a well-researched expert, Redefining Girly is a valuable addition to your parenting library.

2.0 von 5 Sternen How To Parent Like Melissa Atkins Wardy, by Melissa Atkins Wardy 24. April 2014
Von Marauder The Slash Nymph - Veröffentlicht auf
As somebody who's read quite a few of these "saving our daughters from stereotypes and hyper-sexualization" books, "Redefining Girly" might be the lightest one I've seen when it comes to statistical references. While it has some good suggestions, the book mostly consists of author Melissa Atkins Wardy holding up her raising of her daughter Amelia (and son Benny) as a shining example of how to raise children, and holding up her company Pigtail Pals & Ballcap Buddies as a shining example of a strike back in the war against female stereotyping. (Verbatim quote, emphasis mine: "My social media sites and blog are active *and incredible* places for discussion as parents unpack and digest what is going on around their girls.") We hear a lot about how smart the kids are, how Amelia is into science (how many times can Wardy remind us that she named her daughter after Amelia Earhart?), how Benny knows it's okay to like pink things, et cetera. It's less a conversation about stereotyping and more a mom bragging about her kids, and it gets old really fast. Wardy telling us that Amelia's nickname is Smalls constitutes an example that you can nickname a little girl lots of things besides Princess. Wardy taking a whole paragraph to tell us that Amelia's nicknames are (deep breath) Lia, Chippy, Choodle, "my babes," Pumpkin, Sweetie Bee, Smooch, Amelia Dinosaur, Smalls, Beetle, Rascal Pants, "Amelia My Girl," Buddy, Nama, and Mia - complete with who in the family calls her which, and why - constitutes Wardy indulging in eye-glaze-inducing mom-bragging.

I agree with a lot of Wardy's basic ideas, but the way she suggests people implement them left me annoyed and frustrated. I found biases against stay-at-home moms (Wardy suggests that if your daughter tells you she's going to be a mommy when she grows up, the appropriate response is to tell her a story about how much you love being a mommy "but I also like that I support our family by working and traveling for a job I love" - why not just accept that your daughter might decide to make a different choice about motherhood than you did?) and assumptions that readers are all upper-middle-class to upper-class (working-class parents don't usually spend their money on Italian sodas and American Girl dolls).

Wardy also contradicts herself at several points. While she emphasizes repeatedly that "colors are for everyone" and there's nothing wrong with pink as a color, she later mentions that "all [the toys in her house] are primary colored or have gender-neutral tones." After telling us how play should be directed by children's imaginations, not adults, she then proceeds to give suggestions as to how to shape how your daughter plays with her dolls: "Can Barbie run a safari camp or be the head organizer for the Paralympics? Maybe the princess dolls can run a school for girls in the hills of Nepal or a sanctuary for a rare species of bear found only in Montana? Can you help your daughter build a mini organic farm for Barbie in the back yard?" This strikes me as being just as agenda-driven as someone suggesting that their daughter play "fashion show" or "princess" with her dolls. It's just a different agenda. I didn't much care for Wardy's ideas about putting girls in sports, either; as somebody who had the opportunity to play sports as a kid but just wasn't interested - and was made to feel weird because of it - I get sick of people insisting that girls all need to play some kind of sport. As with the stay-at-home- or working mom thing, why not just acknowledge that people have different interests? I also found a brief section about Wardy's sexual past to be off-putting and "TMI" - when I read a book about "how parents can fight the stereotyping and sexualizing of girlhood," I don't expect to find the author reflecting on her high-school history of having sex with boys and what happened with she denied them "a hook-up or a blow job."

Although I agree that little girls are subjected to a lot of stereotypical expectations and there's too much sexualized material geared towards them, and although Wardy has a few useful tips, I didn't particularly like this book. It's too self-congratulatory, too didactic, and references the author's company too many times for me to not suspect that she wrote it partly to pat herself on the back and generate some business revenue.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book gave me the words to say to my children to help them shape their identities 2. Januar 2014
Von EyreAffair - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I am a long-time follower of Melissa Atkins Wardy's work, a frequent participant in her Facebook community at Pigtail Pals Ballcap Buddies, and an academic with a background in media research. I had high hopes for this book and was excited that she would finally have all her thoughts written down for people who are new to the issue of media's influence on children. But I was worried that since I've been immersed in these issues for over a decade, this book would not offer me anything new.

I am happy to say that even as a "veteran", and even as a parent of only boys, I got a LOT out of reading this book. What I have always appreciated about Wardy's approach is that she recaps her own real-life experiences as a parent and provides "scripts" of how she interacts with children (both her own and other people's).

I know what kinds of people I want my boys to become, but since they are preschoolers, I often find it hard to talk to them about it at their level. Wardy has the words. And now she's shared them with all of her readers, enabling us to find new ways to talk about the difficult issues of gender representation, respect for others, and self-confidence in the face of peer pressure.
