oh and by the way simplifying feminist theory to make it accessible to parents is an extremely helpful idea that would be nice to be replicated to other theories as well.

I would be interested in knowing more about the practical guides the author mentions she wrote at the end of each chapter. The problem is that in the world we live in, highly loaded with advertisements supporting Lolita effect and the surrounding of children in schools, it is hard for a parent to be the voice of reason for the child, especially during delicate times such as adolescence. It would be interesting to see what the practical guides say. I am a firm believer that instilling a love for the right books since a young age and working with the child on daily basis might be the best protector for Lolita Effect and other problems such as substance abuse. Anyone knows more about these practical guides?
