Publisher's Summary

Psychologist and physician Leonard Sax’s work with young people reveals that girls today have an incredibly brittle sense of self. Though they may look confident on the outside, teens and tweens are fragile inside, obsessed with grades, sports, networking sites, and appearances. They are confused about their sexual identity, as environmental toxins are accelerating physical maturity faster than their emotional maturity.
Now, Sax gives us the tools we need to help girls become independent and confident women. He provides parents with practical tips on everything from helping their daughters to make decisions to nurturing their spirits through female-centered activities to getting them involved in communities of female role models - which give young women pride and allow them to grow in a safe environment that nurtures curiosity and confidence.

Great Book - Needs A Better Narrator

Well written, just like Why Gender Matters and Boys Adrift. Highly recommended reading for anyone with a daughter. However, the narrator was painful to listen to. I felt as if I was being lectured by school principal at times. Several times I actually had to turn this audio book off as her voice was like nails on a chalk board.

Fantastic information !

Having five children two of which are girls a 16-year-old and 11-year-old this book was spot on.it gave me information to look at Innoway I had never thought too… Which sometimes seems like how could I have not?I feel that should be required reading for any parent who has a girl when she turns seven!!!sometimes the chapters were so intense you had to take a break for a day just to think it all through.I thoroughly enjoyed boys adrift written by the same author and I would add this in that same category five star
