Enough: 10 Things We Should Be Telling Teenage Girls


I enjoy reading self help books so when the opportunity came along for me to review Enough:  10 Things We Should Be Telling Teenage Girls by Kate Connor I knew I wanted in!   As a mom and teacher I needed to read what this book was about to better help me reach a generation of preteens/teenagers.

I grew up back in the 70’s and 80’s.  Although there are many similarities between my childhood and the childhood of my own today, there are also many differences! Perhpas I feel this way simply because I am more in touch with my children and know what I want out of life for them.  Maybe my mom was similar to me and wondered to herself, “What is wrong with today’s youth?” back in the day.


In her book Kate Conner highlights ten truths that ALL girls need to listen to!  Some of those include:


Tanning Beds

Clothing Attracts Certain Kinds of Boys



As I read through this book I kept finding myself saying, “Yes! If only they would get this NOW!”  over and over.  Having raised girls personally, teaching girls in the educational setting, and mentoring to others in Sunday School I can;t tell you how ON TARGET Kate Conner’s book really is!  This is a book that you will WANT to invest in and go over with your daughter, granddaughter, nieces, etc…  You may even find yourself wanting to bring this to a bigger level in your personal life such as Sunday School, Girl Scouts, etc…  Do yourself a favor and an even bigger favor for those precious females in your life, buy this book and take some time to go through it.  It is a quick read and will get your conversation rolling on topics that mean something!
About the Author: Kate Elizabeth Conner is a 27 year old writer, speaker, and first generation southerner who spends her days learning braille, counseling teenagers via text message, and adjusting to life in middle Georgia.In a book based on her run-away blog post “Ten Things I Want to Tell Teenage Girls,” which garnered more than 2 million views in two weeks, Kate Conner calls us to action in Enough. We all have teenage girls in our lives who we love, whether it’s a sister, friend, or daughter. Kate has identified 10 things these girls need to hear today from someone who loves her.

Peppered with wit and laced with grace, Kate’s list tackles relevant issues like Facebook, emotions, drama, tanning beds, modesty, and flirtation. Woven into each chapter is a powerful message of worth that transcends age, and will touch the souls of women, young and old alike: You are beautiful. You are valuable. You are enough.

A former youth-worker, wife to a college minister, and a young mom in her twenties, Conner stands squarely in generational gap, the perfect place from which to bridge it. Conner offers herself as a translator, helping you to speak your teenager’s language and equipping you with a fresh perspective from which to engage your teenage girl—one that may enable her to truly hear your heart (and your wisdom) for the first time since puberty.
