Publisher's Summary

An important book that shows that 10 is the new start of a girl's teenage years. It raises the issues our girls might not be talking about publicly and guides their parents on how experts believe we should deal with it.

At 10, we know how girls are pigeonholing themselves into what they think they should be. Whether they see themselves as academic or not, whether they are interested in boys, puberty is a reality, friendship fights are underway and the influence of social media is impacting. 

With heightened pressure from what they see in the media, in movies and on TV, our girls are leaving childhood behind well before they hit their teens. Not surprisingly, emotions can be heightened and relationships can be fraught. So many parents struggle to understand the pressures our girls are under and how to deal with their emotional volatility. Journalist and social commentator Madonna King has an extraordinary ability to connect with experts, schools and the girls themselves to deliver the answers parents need and the communication our girls want. 

Ten-ager is the perfect guide to help parents understand how their daughter is feeling, what they need to know, what to say and when to stay silent and listen.

interesting insights

Good information to have before you succumb to buying your daughter a mobile phone!
Although parents probably instinctively know these things, it was still a worthwhile listen.

Wonderful

I absolutely loved this audiobook and have now purchased a hard copy of Ten-ager for my book shelf.
I’d recommend it for anyone with children.
So insightful and a great eye opener to the things our girls may be trying to share with us but don’t know how.
