For parents who want to raise self-confident girls who first and foremost love themselves, it is hard for them to stomach 18-year-old Bella's all-encompassing and self-destructive passion for Edward.

In the second installment of the series, Edward leaves Bella because he believes she is better off without him in her life.

This leads Bella to attempt cliff diving and dangerous motorcycle stunts that endanger her life.
