AS an ob-gyn specialing in adolescent care, Dr. Jennifer Ashton understands better than anyone that being a teenage girl these days is fraught with a special kind of angst. But in her practice she talks openly and nonjudgementally to her young patients like a good friend, answering each of their questions respectfully and with candor. Now she shartes this advice in a no-holds-barred guidebook, based on her passion to cut through the embarrassment that girls often feel about their changing bodies and to arm them with the knowledge they need to make smart choices. A comprehensive guide from head to toe, The Body Scoop for Girls covers the basics of puberty and beyond, including:
•Breast development and nipple bumps
•The decision to wait to have sex, and the benefits of waiting
•The lowdown on STIs
•Depression and hormone imbalances
•Grooming, from hair removal to hygiene products
Writing in a funny and fresh, girl-to-girl voice, Dr. Ashton has created a totally up-to-date health book that speaks directly to young women and the unique pressures they face today. From a doctor who "gets it," The Body Scoop for Girls makes the road to womanhood an empowering one.
This book is amazing. I don't like reading, and I had a hard time putting it down. That's when you know you have a great book.
I think this book is so much better than others cause it's actually written by a ob-gyn not a random Gal who wanted to write a book. Thanks a lot to the author!!!
i wish i had a book like this when i was growing up. it really would have made adolesence ten times easier. this book really helped my daughter.
