If you are raising a young girl, you know just how challenging this can be. She is changing in every way – physically, emotionally, mentally, and socially and girlhood can be tricky to navigate when she is constantly on her phone and distracted by social media, bombarded with images of idealistic beauty, and feeling the pressure to be successful and ‘perfect’ in every way. Parents want their girls to be strong, confident, and brave yet they often don’t know where to start. This Banyen Talk will provide practical tools you need to nurture and champion your girl to become her most authentic, healthy, and happy self and it all begins with cultivating connection with her.

Book Description:

Girls today face incredible pressure to grow up fast. They yearn to connect, but sometimes this yearning turns into negative, even destructive behavioral patterns such as gossiping, being passive-aggressive and mean, becoming screen-addicted or disengaging from school. It’s heart breaking to watch even the most confident little girls disconnect and lose their sparkle as they hit the preteen years.

In Growing Strong Girls, Lindsay Sealey reveals the tremendous power of connection to activate self-awareness, inner strength, and confidence, and healthy social and emotional development in girls. It all starts with a nurturing and secure connection between you and her. Growing Strong Girls is an invitation for you, a call to action!
