MUST READ

“Your Daughter’s Bedroom” is one of my favorite books! Growing up, I wish my mother had read this, and I’m so glad I found this and read it. McFadden is a genius in creating a dialogue about these topics that are often overlooked and rarely researched. Through her surveys of women’s sexual experiences, she helps to educate everyday women on how to promote conversations of sexuality with their daughters as well as feel comfortable in their own sexualities. A mother is extremely influential on her daughter’s sexuality and level of comfort with her body. This conversation is so so so important, and every woman, mother, and daughter should read it. With limited research on the topics of masturbation, menstruation, relationships, and sexuality in general, “Your Daughter’s Bedroom” is a great tool to learn. The relationship I had with my mother deeply influenced my body image and sexuality, and I would have turned out very different if she had read this book or had access to research about this topic. I definitely recommend this book!”

I Love My Mom

“From a very young age, a girl’s sexuality is being shaped through the messages given from her mother, and the actions she sees around her. Each word that is said on the topic of sex, one’s own body, behaviors, and values is all taken in whether moms realize it or not. Your Daughter’s Bedroom is an outstanding book that reflects on these key point in the relationship between mothers and their daughters and the components of sexuality, sex education, and sexual behavior. While reading this book I was overwhelmed by emotions and memories of my past experiences with my own mother. I thought back to the messages I received as a child, the education I was given on sex, and conversations I had not even given a thought about how important they were until now. I love my mother, cherish our relationship and respect how she raised me, but I believe our relationship, and every mother-daughter relationship, would profit from reading this book.”

Must-Read

“Reading this book had a profound impact on how I view my mother, and how I would hope to raise my own daughters if I have them. It has also provided some insight into the reasons why the women in my family may behave in the ways that they do, and having a better understanding helps me find compassion. While reading this book, I smiled, laughed and cried. It inspired me to connect with my own mother, even though I am 23 now and we are past the formative years, I have a new desire to connect with her as a woman. The messages, spoken and unspoken, from our mothers have a profound impact on our sexual self-perceptions and reading this book helped me understand the reasons why I am the way that I am, as well as how to speak to younger girls, whether they are my daughters or not, in ways that I hope will empower them.”

Inspirational and incredible

“If you have a daughter, are a daughter, or know anyone who has a daughter or is a daughter, Your Daughter’s Bedroom is relevant to your life. Too often, we choose not to talk to our daughters about issues surrounding sexuality. This is because we feel too much shame or because we do not have the language or information to do it correctly. This book changes that. From masturbation to menstruation, this book will help you realize how important it is that you do not leave your daughter in the dark about these subjects. McFadden’s research reveals that the messages young women are bombarded with can be combatted by learning accurate information from their mothers, and this book provides just that. We all want the best for our children, and this book can help us give them that without making us feel guilty about our own fears surrounding the uncomfortable topics. By knowing that so many mothers are all facing the very same challenges, McFadden gives us the inspiration and confidence to empower the next generation.”

Eye-opening read!

“I learned about this book after it was referenced in another book I was reading. Having a tween daughter, I thought it would be helpful to read. I wasn’t expecting to feel some of the emotions I felt! It brought back a lot of memories I had as a teenager and going through alot of those changes and remembering how alone I felt not really having someone to talk with. The surveys that McFadden collected were interesting and comforting and in a way brought some peace & understanding of some things. But most importantly, it made me think about the kind of relationship I want to have with my own daughters and how I can make that happen. This book isn’t for the shy, the author holds no topics back! When I first started reading the book, I wanted to remove the cover when I was out in public reading in waiting rooms! However, by the end, I was shy no more, proud to be a woman and wanted to tell everyone with a daughter about this book.”

I am so glad I found this book

“My mother didn’t teach me ANYTHING about my sexuality. This book teaches me EVERYTHING I need to educate my daughters about their sexuality. I am so glad I found this book. It’s been a game changer for me and I hope others will learn from it as well. Our entire culture could benefit from this information.”
