Product Description

Devorah Blachor, an ardent feminist, never expected to be the parent of a little girl who was totally obsessed with the color pink, princesses, and all things girly. She wasn't sure how to reconcile the difference between her parental expectations and the reality of her Disney-worshiping three-year-old daughter.

Offering insight, advice, and plenty of humor and personal anecdotes, this mother shares her story of how she surrendered control and opened up—to her Princess Toddler, to pink, and to life. She addresses important issues such as how to raise a daughter in a society that pressures girls and women to conform to an unrealistic beauty ideal, and how to let her daughter feel free to be her authentic self.
