Publisher's Summary

Nearly one in five girls aged 16-17 years meet the clinical criteria for depression.
One in fourteen young Australians (7%) aged 4-17 experienced an anxiety disorder.
These figures only get worse as our girls age with one in three women in Australia experiencing anxiety.

This indispensable guide will provide the tools to raising a girl who is happy and confident. Because when you raise a girl who likes herself, everything else follows.

> She will strive for excellence because she has faith in her ability to achieve it and the
confidence to pick herself up.
> She will nurture her physical and mental health because it's natural to care for something you love.
> She will insist on healthy relationships because she believes she deserves nothing less.
> She will be joyful and secure, knowing that her greatest friend and most capable ally is herself.

Packed with practical, evidence-based advice, Raising Girls Who Like Themselves details the seven qualities that enable girls to thrive and arm themselves against a world that tells them they are flawed.

  1. A girl who likes herself has a power perspective
  2. A girl who likes herself has body confidence
  3. A girl who likes herself owns her body
  4. A girl who likes herself is calm
  5. A girl who likes herself is independent and masterful
  6. A girl who likes herself has strong relationships
  7. A girl who likes herself is herself

Free of parental guilt and grounded in research, Raising Girls Who Like Themselves is imbued with the warmth and wit of a mum and dad who are in the same parenting trenches as you, fighting for their daughters' futures.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

I listened twice

I found this book really helpful and practical. I let my daughter listen to parts and recommended it to many school mums. Highly recommend it to tween mums in particular.

Incredible insights!

I would highly recommend this book to all parents and grandparents out there, not just parents of daughters.
The learnings you will take away from reading this book will aid in creating a better understanding of how we should approach and interact with children and how we can change the stigma surrounding girls and our society one step at a time.
As a proud father to an amazing daughter I will continue to read this book in future years and refine these new skills.
Thank you.

Relevant and worthwhile

This book is well overdue, particularly given recent media reports on how girls and women continue to be treated, even in today’s society. It offers many actionable steps and ideas that I believe would be effective to help our daughters. For that I give it five stars. However at times it comes across as very preachy and lacking depth, particularly for different parent types and family situations. It is worthwhile wading through and cherry-picking ideas for your own family.

Not suitable for neuro diverse kids (or their parents)

If you have a neuro diverse child or a child with learning differences don’t bother with this book. Much of it will not apply to your child.
