Being a mother isn't easy, but neither is being a daughter. Having fought, laughed, cried, and loved with a daughter of her own, Tammy Jameson knows all about the difficulties of forging a strong mother-daughter relationship and both coming out more enlightened women at the end of it. Do As I Say, Not As I Do recounts her many colorful memories from motherhood, and using the lessons she learned in each, shares much-needed tips and life advice to mothers and daughters everywhere. From friendship and dating to sex and marriage, general hygiene and healthy living to dream jobs and world travel, these chapters leave no stone unturned. But more importantly, Jameson's blunt spunk leaves no more room for excuses. Her message is straightforward, much like her voice: be there for your daughter, seek to understand your mother, and grow together into independent, loving, hard-working women of class and strength.
“Dear Ashley” is unique, in part, because it is not written from the perspective of the sufferer, the treatment professional or the medical or psychological researcher. Instead, it may be the first time a dad has shared his perspective on his daughter’s eating disorder battle in print, let alone done so in such an engaging, intimate and heart-warming manner. The fact that Don Blackwell offers that perspective, openly and honestly, is one of many reasons parents and young adults are likely to be drawn to the book’s life-affirming message of hope.
A "diverse group of women--from Madeleine Albright to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, from Dr. Susan Love to Whoopi Goldberg and more...reflect on the best advice and counsel they have given their daughters either by example, throughout their lives, or in character-building, teachable moments between parent and child"--Book jacket.
