Girls' Guide to Life

Girls' Guide to Life

Why do our girls have good self-esteem in elementary school and then start a slow slide down the scale into middle school and high school? Is it the messages they receive from the culture around them or is it the messages they are giving to themselves? Maybe it's a bit of both. Here's a book designed to help girls notice how they talk to themselves and how they treat themselves and how they act. There are exercises and questions posed with a goal of getting girls to look in the mirror a little more closely and not to be staring at their thighs while they're doing it. Do they hide their real feelings from others and maybe even from themselves? Are they more concerned with others' feelings than with their own? Can they give themselves permission to be unique..to be who they truly were born to be even if that means not conforming to every message the advertising industry has sold them on? Not designed to teach you how to get a bra fitted or how to use a tampon. This one goes beyond those beginner topics and asks you to look at your whole self and your real self. Who are you and are you ready to begin that life of promise that is yours to claim? Great discussion topics and conversation starters for mothers and daughters, for girls alone in their rooms, or for bookclubs...149 pages Ages 9 and up
