Description

Insightful, heartfelt, and hopeful, Surviving Ophelia is a must-read for any mother of a teenage daughter who has ever felt disappointed, alone, or afraid.

Raising a teenage girl can be overwhelming for the most important female figure in her life: her mother. From handling the often delicate situations surrounding academic performance, athletics, friendships, sexual activity, and drug and alcohol experimentation to instilling a healthy body image and providing a strong role model, mothers often feel alone in their struggle to cope with all that they must do for their daughters.

To provide the community that these women so desperately crave, Cheryl Dellasega has written Surviving Ophelia, a book of profound wisdom and compassion. Dellasega’s own story of raising her teenage daughters is punctuated by the collective experience of hundreds of other mothers from all walks of life who have been there, in the trenches, experiencing and chronicling the daily joys and trials of raising their teenage girls.
