"You just don't understand!"
If adolescent girls agree on one thing, it's that adults don't "get" what's going on in their lives. Friendship drama, self-image, grades, dating, fear of failure—these pressures impose limits. So what can you do? How can you ensure each and every girl lives up to her potential?
"Be the adult who does understand," says Dr. Lisa Hinkelman. In Girls Without Limits, you'll gain new insight on how to
- Understand the unique challenges girls face when dealing with social pressure, body image, boy trouble, academics, and career choices
- Help girls develop skills and competencies to deal with these challenges
- Empower girls to confront negative societal expectations and make healthy, positive decisions
Combining relevant research with revealing real-life stories and action strategies, Girls Without Limits will help you become a positive force in girls' lives in any capacity: as a teacher, counselor, advisor, or parent.
