Enough #10things we should be telling our teenage girls book giveaway


Being a Mom of a teenager can be tricky; being a mom of a teen age girl can be sticky.  I say this because, if a parent isn’t very careful, she will find herself in one sticky situation after another because teenage girls are full of emotions. That’s why I was thrilled to receive a complimentary copy of Enough by Kate Conner via Flyby Promotions to review and host a giveaway. 



Enough by Kate Conner book cover #10things




I couldn’t wait for this book to arrive. Even though I have a good relationship with my 15 yr. old daughter, I’m open to learning all I can about parenting, especially during the turbulent teens years.

Once my copy arrived, I turned the book over to read the back jacket as I always do and these are the words that greeted me.

  • You are beautiful.
  • You are valuable.
  • You are enough.


Those are powerful, beautiful and truthful words.  Words that I daresay we do not hear enough in our lives so please take a moment and read those three sentences again. And if you take nothing else with you after you read this post- I will feel honored that I could share those truths with you. 


About the Author:

Kate Conner is a 28 year old writer, blogger, speaker, Southerner- hailing from North Carolina, Mom of 3, Counselor of teenage girls, Daughter of Christ, thrift store shopper. That’s what I got from her bio on Enough. After reading this book though, I discovered Kate is so much more than her bio. She’s smart, funny, real, and authentic, the kid sister I never had and the big sister influence teenage girls need. 




About Enough- #10 things we should be telling teenage girls


Quotes from Enough book by Kate Conner #10things



This book was born from a blog post on March 25, 2012. I never read Kate’s “10 things I want to tell teenage girls” postbut apparently I was completely out of the loop, because 2 million other people read it in just two weeks. After reading Enough, where Kate expands and explains her 10 things, I can see why her post was so wildly popular.



Quotes from Enough book by Kate Conner #10things


Kate touches on the teenage girl of today; she talks openly about why men and boys stare, modesty and why how we look matters. She talks openly about drama, using words as weapons and over-sharing on social media. She shares insights into being female and controlling our emotions instead of our emotions controlling us. 



Quotes from Enough book by Kate Conner #10things



In essence, Kate covers most of the power struggle, hot bed topics that will or may have already come up with your teenage girl.  I enjoyed this book and found it to be a valuable resource. 

If you have found yourself arguing with your teenage girl about clothing, dating, friends etc. and don’t want to wage another war- hand her this book, tell her it’s a “must read” and walk away. She’ll read it and learn from it.  My daughter read it and really liked. While our parenting mirrors Kate's wise words- she touched on subjects in a new and different way that resonated with my daughter.

 I even recommend that Moms with teenage sons read this book, because if it hasn’t happened yet- girl drama will affect your son and what better way to help him navigate this area than to have an insight?

I would give this to a teen girl in my church.

If I won, I would donate it to my local library.

I would give this to my daughter! I might have to save it for a couple years, but she would love it.

If I won this book, I would keep it. I do not think we can ever prepare for the later years of parenting too early. My daughter is almost 7 and I think some of the things mentioned here are things we need to be telling our daughters from the very beginning, not just as teens. Sounds like a great book.

If I won, i would read this, then share it with my sister who has a teenage girl. And then, in a few years, I would borrow it back for my daughter.

I was blessed to also receive this book and I was worried, because I don't even have a girl. The story was amazing and I learned so much just for my personal life, that I think it's good for any age!! Great post!

Heidi Bee said...

I think I would keep it! My little girl is young still but you can never be too prepared!!

Holly Fink said...

I'd also save it for my daughter.
