The Way of the Warrior Mama shows parents how to offer protection to their teenage daughter and conquer their own fears in raising her.
If you’re a mom, you’re worried about your daughter surviving the adolescent years protected and sound. In a culture that encourages kids to be sexy long before they reach puberty, and when one in four college women report surviving rape or attempted rape and one in ten high school girls is the victim of date rape, the prospect of raising a teenage girl can also be daunting. By tackling the subject of sexual assault head-on, Sally Clark offers a roadmap to navigating one of the vital treacherous parts of the journey from girlhood to womanhood. Sally speaks straight away to moms who are overly anxious about keeping their daughters protected and shows them that the a very powerful element in raising a strong, resilient daughter lies in healing and addressing their own adolescent wounds. Through interviews with experts and leading practitioners in fields ranging from adolescent psychology to mindful self-compassion, The Way of the Warrior Mama teaches proven, concrete, and innovative techniques to dramatically reduce parenting stress and increase mothers’ faith that they are able to offer protection to their daughter.
