According to Maggie Dent, Australia's queen of common-sense parenting, how we parent our girls from birth to 8 will determine their path as teens and young women. Without the right foundations, girls often struggle with anxiety once they hit puberty, becoming addicted to devices and developing an over-reliance on external measures of success rather than internal ones.
In her follow-up to the bestselling From Boys to Men, Maggie offers parents and guardians a common-sense and compassionate guide to raising our girls to become secure, connected and confident in their teen years and beyond. Advocating for free play, reduced scheduling, less screens and much more love, Maggie shows us how to best guide our daughters as they progress through childhood and navigate relationships, technology and real-world challenges.
Based on nearly 5000 survey results from Maggie's community and packed with advice, insight and up-to-date research, Girlhood is the essential guide to raising our girls from Australia's go-to parenting expert.
