Any parent can identify with the feeling that girls growing up in America face a treacherous future; "Girls Uncovered" unveils the facts. In a follow-up to their eye-opening release "Hooked," obstetricians McIlhaney and Bush present stunning scientific research on the development of young girls in America's increasingly reckless sexual culture.
Cafe Lily's Review:
This book was disturbing to read! However, if you are a parent, you need to read this, especially if you are concerned about how our toxic society is affecting the way our children, adolescents and teens think.
A 2009 study showed that in America, 65% of senior high school girls admitted to having sexual intercourse. 20% of those same girls, had more than four partners. Society is lulling our children into thinking that having sex before marriage is the norm. 70% of television programs popular with teenagers, have sexually related content. For every HOUR that your teen watches these programs, they will be exposed to 6.7 sexually related scenes. Pop culture is pressuring our teens to act, look, dress and think a certain way which is leading America's teens into destructive behaviors.
Although young men and women are both at risk, Girls Uncovered will show you why our young women seem to be more effected and impacted by the lies that society is using to mislead her. This book is not preachy in anyway and is written by two medical doctors whose years of experience have given them a first hand look at the destructive trend.
I highly recommend this book!
