Publisher's Summary

A guide to surviving and thriving through your daughter's teenage years. 

What is the best thing about being a teenage girl right now? 'My friends!' 'Independence!' 'Discovering who I am.' What is the worst thing about being a teenage girl? 'My friends.' 'Not knowing what the future holds.' 'Pressure to be perfect and look a certain way.' What do teenage girls wish they could talk to us about? 'I'm sick of pretending to be happy all the time.' 'My face; if anyone is ever going to love me despite how grotesque my face is.' 'I sometimes don't want to be here.' 

There has never been a better time to be a teenage girl. But perhaps there has never been a harder time. We know that connection is at the heart of our teenage daughters' happiness. And we do our best to have strong connections with our girls. But despite this, we often feel a disconnect. Or perhaps, more precisely, a mis-connect. 

If you're looking to understand your teen daughter better and deepen your connection with her, this audiobook is your guide. Drawing on cutting-edge psychology research along with interviews and surveys from close to 400 teenage girls, Miss-Connection will take you into the world your teen girl experiences and help you connect with her the way she needs you to. As the girls themselves set out the challenges they face – with social media, friends, boys, identity – you will find connection and solutions.

I only wish I’d read it sooner

Relatable, sensible and I’d recommend it any parent especially of girls but parents of son’s would definitely appreciate it too

Insightful and helpful

Although I was once a teenage girl it is hard to remember exactly what it was like to be one. Furthermore, times have changed so whatever pressures or worries I might have experienced back then, my daughter's experiences are no doubt quite different. This book, as told by the author in an engaging manner, fills in the gaps by offering explanations for why your teenage daughter might be acting a certain way or how they might be feeling and provides some great advice on how to respond. It's certainly opened my mind. I couldn't recommend this book more highly.

Insightful, relevant, introspective, motivating, and practical!

One of the best books I have read on raising children. It’s so easy to wonder what the right thing to do is in any given situation. This book gives parents a good foundation, and really good principles to follow. Fantastic. Wish I could give it 6 stars!
