Raising a Princess book review

Raising a Princess Eight Essential Virtues To Teach Your Daughter, is a book written by John Croyle. It is geared towards fathers and their daughters.

About the book:

The Bible’s frequently referenced chapter of Proverbs 31 defines godly womanhood. In Raising a Princess, greatly respected child advocate John Croyle asks, "How do you equip a daughter to become the kind of woman who is described in Proverbs 31?"
 
After all, a woman like that doesn't appear out of nowhere. Somebody taught her to rise before dawn to provide for her household. Somebody gave her the moral compass to reach out her hand to the needy. Somebody taught her the business principles that made it possible for her to consider a field and buy it. Perhaps most importantly, somebody gave her a sufficiently strong sense of self that made it possible for her to go out and make a huge impact on the world around her.
 
Raising a Princess begins with the end in mind. The end is the Proverbs 31 woman; Croyle keeps her squarely in view as he looks at what parenting techniques help the reader to raise a princess who will someday be a queen.
 
Based on Croyle's life and experience parenting more than 1,800 abused and neglected children at Big Oak Ranch, alongside his two biological children, the book is organized around eight virtues a parent can build in his or her princess:
 
 
P: Praiseworthiness

R: Righteousness

I: Initiative

N: Nurture

C: Character

E: Empowerment

S: Servant-Heartedness

S: Stability


This book was excellent! It was easy to read, and although geared towards fathers raising daughters, it's great for mothers too! 

Everyone wants their children to grow up to be strong and independent, this book gives enlightenment and encouragement on how to succeed at that very thing!

The author does a great job of telling first hand accounts of his time at the Big Oak Ranch, where children of neglect are given a better opportunity.

This is a wonderful book for any parent, and a great gift for those dads who love to read!
