Author, psychologist, and activist Steve Biddulph is one of the world's best-known parental educators. Biddulph's books center around child development, providing parents with practical tips on raising their kids. In the updated 2019 edition of Raising Girls in the 21st Century, Biddulph sheds light on how to approach difficult subjects, including body image, sexuality, bullying, and puberty. Using personal anecdotes, scientific findings, and expert opinions, Biddulph helps parents understand their daughters better.
