Bringing Up Girls Author James C. Dobson

Bringing Up Girls by Dr. James C. Dobson
 Bringing Up Girls
Author James C. Dobson 


 Peer pressure. Eating disorders. Decisions about love, romance, and sex. Academic demands. Life goals and how to achieve them. These are just some of the challenges that girls face today—and the age at which they encounter them is getting younger and younger. As a parent, how are you guiding your daughter on her journey to womanhood? Are you equipping her to make wise choices? Whether she’s still playing with dolls or in the midst of the often-turbulent teen years, is she truly secure in her identity as your valued and loved daughter? In the New York Times bestseller Bringing Up Girls, parenting authority and trusted family counselor Dr. James Dobson will help you face the challenges of raising your daughters to become strong, healthy, and confident women who excel in life.



Bringing Up Girls by Dr. James C. Dobson

I wish this book had been written decades ago with my oldest daughter. Since then, I have had four more daughters. Recently, I have become a single mom, just divorced, and it scares the heck outta me that my girls have lost their father figure. Bringing Up Girls has many chapters about the father and daughter relationship such as discussing the importance of why dads matter in their daughters life. With my recent divorce it has frightened me that my girls no longer have a good male role model. Yes, mom's do matter--and I must admit that I feel the burden of being the best mom in the world because of their father's shortcomings. I challenge you to pick up a copy today. Let this book speak to your heart and be open to the encouragement it has to offer.




Recommendation:

I highly recommend Bringing Up Girls by Dr. James C. Dobson for counselors, fathers, mothers and grandparents. If you are going to read one book this year, give a book this year as a gift, or in need an idea for a subject in a class, use this book. It will open your eyes very deeply by sharing how relationships between mother and daughter, father and daughter is vital for your daughters growth into adulthood.

Farmer Jason and Buddies - Nature Jams CD


Dove Family Approved; a Parents' Choice Award Winner
The Perfect Musical Gift for Earth Day
Farmer Jason Encourages Kids To Get Active and
Delight in the Big World Outside with
Nature Jams
The Premier Release for myKaZoo Music, with videos featured on myKaZootv!


 Farmer Jason Celebrates the Great Outdoors
and Active Fun with a Who's Who of  Guest Artists.
Gift-ready package includes 4 music videos
and 20 - page  illustrated book


Farmer Jason (aka Jason Ringenberg of Jason and the Scorchers) reaches a 
new peak with Nature Jams, the first release for MyKaZoo Music (Universal).

(New York and Los Angeles, April 1, 2012) ~ It's nearly Earth Day, which is on April 22, and parents are looking for positive ways to engage kids with nature. And more than one recent study indicates how important it is for tots to be active every day.
For Farmer Jason, whose Nature Jams album was recently released on the new myKaZoo Music label with Universal Music Enterprises, music and song offer a pleasant way to point out the joys of being outside and experiencing animals, plants and fresh air. Nature Jams has already won a Family Approved Seal from the Dove Foundation, a Parents’ Choice Award and kudos from parents and kids around the country.
A strong supporter of such organizations as the Nature Conservancy, Farmer Jason actually runs a real hobby farm near Nashville when he’s not on the road performing for families. His love of nature shines through on these new songs.
“As Earth Day approaches, I am thankful for the opportunity to share my love of nature with children,” explains Jason (also known as Jason Ringenberg of Jason and the Scorchers). My hope is that kids will become inspired to get outside and appreciate the wonders of the great outdoors, even if you live in a big city.”
Nature Jams offers 16 original songs and 4 music videos, featuring such guest artists as Iris Dement, Mike Mills of R.E.M., Tom Petersson of Cheap Trick, Suzy Bogguss, Alison Brown and Brandi Carlile. The song styles range from rock and roll anthems to sea shanties, jazz to folk. Farmer Jason talks with his musical guests about taking hikes, going canoeing, skating and even spelunking. The idea is to get kids excited about the big world around them, observing cool animals (“Meadowlark in Central Park,” “Manatee” and “Dison the Bison”), learning about cool places around the world and simply enjoying nature. Says Farmer Jason, “We tried to make these songs energetic, fun and exciting so kids would be inspired to get outside and be active with their environment. That’s the way they learn to love it.”
Since releasing the new CD/DVD Nature Jams package in February, the good farmer is raking in kudos from parents and critics alike. Check out Dadnabbit's recent interview with Jason, and the growing list of reviews. Jason will soon be featured on legendary critic Dave Marsh's Sirius-XM "Kick Out the Jams" radio show. Next week, he will be interviewed on NBC-TV, Nashville's legendary WSM radio and Great American Country television.
Meanwhile, kids can also dance and play along when they're stuck indoors, with Farmer Jason’s fun nature music videos on the new music video channel for kids,myKaZootv

My Thoughts

What a great way to bond with your child or grandchild! In the meantime, you can purchase a copy online so that you can experience the fun of dancing and singing along with this delightful CD. Have fun!
