Présentation de l'éditeur

What happens when a girl has the brain of an 8-year-old and the body of a 13-year-old?

A sea change is underway among many of today's girls: They are developing faster and entering puberty earlier than ever before. Just a generation ago, fewer than 5 percent of girls started puberty before the age of 8; today that percentage has more than doubled. Early puberty is not just a matter of physical transformation--it's deeply psychological too, with effects that can put a girl at higher risk for behavioral problems as well as long-term health challenges such as obesity, depression, eating disorders, and even cancer.

Why is this happening, and what does it mean for our girls' futures? What can we do to help lead them through this major transition to live happy and healthy lives?

In their groundbreaking book, The New Puberty, Louise Greenspan, MD, and Julianna Deardorff, PhD--two leading experts on the root causes and potential consequences of early puberty in girls--have written a reassuring and empowering guide that will forever change the way we view puberty and parent the next generation.

Drawing on original cutting-edge research and years of clinical experience, Drs. Greenspan and Deardorff explain why girls are developing earlier and identify both established and surprising triggers--from excess body fat and hormone-mimicking chemicals to emotional stressors in a girl's home and family life. They offer highly practical strategies that can help prevent and manage early puberty, including how to limit exposures to certain ingredients in personal care and household products, which foods to eat and which to avoid, and ways to improve a child's sleep routine to promote healthy biology. Moreover, the authors--both mothers of young girls--offer parents, teachers, coaches, and caretakers guidance to initiate and continue the conversation about puberty in an age-appropriate way in order to support girls as they navigate this complex stage of their lives.

Impeccably researched, engaging, and urgently needed, The New Puberty provides a roadmap to help young girls move forward with confidence, ensuring their future well-being.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Resource for early puberty 8 octobre 2014
Par Talvi - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The focus of the New Puberty book is early development in girls - with examples as young as 5 year old hitting puberty (but mostly geared at the 8-9 year range). Yet ideally this is also a book for parents with young girls who haven't started showing puberty signs yet to give them an idea of what to look for and some insight into why the modern girl is hitting puberty so much earlier/younger than her predecessors. The book is extremely informative and ideal for both parents (written in a friendly and accessible way) and practitioners (many recent studies are published and put together). As a parent, I look for these types of books to be informative and yet not have all the answers - I don't want another 'fad' or narrowminded perspective on parenting. What I do need is to know what recent findings there are and have those put into perspective of our past approaches to dealing with girls hitting puberty (earlier or otherwise).

The book is broken down as follows : Part 1: Causes of Early Puberty (defining puberty, potential repercussions, and puberty prompters). Part 2: Strategies (is medicine necessary, precautionary steps, healthy habits, the brain of a developing girl, the "talk"). In effect, the "Why" and then the "what to do."

This isn't a hype book with a lot of call outs or pretty pictures. It's a very straightforward, informative, intelligent approach to the subject with the understanding that we are still learning so much about the subject (and will probably never know completely about the process of turning girls into women). And, although hitting puberty early is natural, it can also be very problematic for the girl and create issues that will need to be dealt with by parents.

Also important is that there are steps parents can take to help prevent the onset of puberty at an earlier age. The book notes that the three most powerful forces at work in early puberty deal with weight, exposure to chemicals, and social/psychological trauma. Simply working toward a better diet at 5-6 years old could have great benefits toward discouraging the body to kick into puberty early.

This is a very good read for parents of young girls, whether or not they are seeing signs of puberty. Sometimes, parents really need an intelligent and straightforward presentation of factors that are (or may) affect the growth of their child. Especially since we are bombarded with 'answers' from relatives and media that are without basis or fact.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Read this book if you have daughters! 17 septembre 2014

As a mom of preteen daughters, I found this book to be insightful, informative and also practical. I wish I had this book when my daughters were younger! I especially loved all the practical information offered in Chapter 5- How to manage environmental risks and Chapter 8- Don't have the "talk", start the conversation. If you have daughters, this is a "must have" book to add to your parenting library.

An expertly written book by true experts. It is written for the layman, but as a physician I find it very valuable. Everyone raising girls should own it.

As a mother of a 9 year old girl, this book couldn't have hit the shelves at a more perfect time. The authors have provided a thorough, yet easy to interpret, guide to understanding the various external situations that are causing an increase in early puberty. I learned about research that I wasn't previously aware of as well as what to expect as my daughter enters this new stage of development. The advice regarding dietary and lifestyle adjustments is invaluable. If you have a young daughter, I highly recommend that you pick up a copy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 7 rising 17 - correcting the arithmetic of puberty 20 octobre 2014
Par Linda England - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This book is essential reading for anyone who lives with or works with or is related to young girls. It is of particular importance to parents of daughters of today and tomorrow, imparting technical and scientific information with a facility of expression, giving lay people knowledge that is usually only acquired through many years of study and practice. The style is conversational. The authors speak to their readers, sharing the results of their research with skill and - which makes it different from any textbook - on occasions, humor. If children are uniquely cued in to our [adult] anxieties (p195), readers need have no such fear. A problem of the present day is presented as having the capacity for becoming a manageable situation through the clarity of the authors' descriptions and the use of examples that all readers can recognise from their own experiences. The subject is serious but every topic literally grabs your attention.
