Why a book on hygiene for tweenie girls?

The hardest conversation for single fathers to have with their daughters is about hygiene. Therefore, I decided to write a book that fathers could use with their daughters to start an important and much needed talk with their young daughters. Every parent wants their child to internalize good habits related to taking care of themselves. However, for some girls this can be journey if these habits aren’t taught on a regular basis. Below is an excerpt from the guide to give you an example of what is included in this publication:

As little girls get older, one of the first things that they notice is that they begin to smell differently. If they don’t notice, someone else usually does. This can be extremely embarrassing to go from being a kid that just needs a bath to needing to use products, and using them correctly. Little girls may notice that they are sweating underneath their arms or between their legs. Their legs that used to be smooth and soft like babies are now course and require care. This is when girls need to be taught to care for themselves continuously and on a schedule. I do not advocate doing a woman’s day, and then expecting girls to pick up everything they need to know in one session. They need to be continually taught how to care for themselves. Let’s start with a daily routine:

Morning Routine

Girls need to start taking showers by age ten. They need their own soap, a hand towel, house coat, towel, deodorant, antiperspirant and lotion.

Girls need to take a bath every night. They need to learn to clean themselves properly. Then moisturize their body with lotion.

My hope is that this guide will help fathers talk to their daughters about this important topic.
You can download this eguide on Barnes and Noble or wherever ebooks are sold for $1.99. You can also buy the print version of the book for $5.99.
