Banyen's Description: 

You Grow Girl! is a balanced, integrated workbook addressing core issues millions of girls aged 9–16 struggle with every day—weight and size anxieties, peer pressure, and dangerously deceptive media messages. Its goal is to help girls develop awareness and self-esteem and to recognize and challenge unhealthy messages. Interactive sections on weight, size and food, stress, culture and peer pressure, and deceptive media and Internet images offer insight and teach coping and problem-solving tools.

Written in friendly, upbeat language the book is full of useful, but not boring, exercises interspersed with true stories from real girls. The many black and white photographs feature normal, unglamorized teens and include inspiring profiles of women whose lives and achievements offer healthy role models. Also included are worksheets you can fill in, which answer questions such as “What factors prevent you from relaxing more?”

Learning how to “Sit and Go Blah” will help you cleanse your mind and feel comfortable in your own skin.

You Grow Girl! helps girls recognize and utilize the connection between their self- esteem, thought patterns, eating habits, and overall health to establish a balanced, integrated perspective. The authors, both mothers and professional counselors, hope to foster healthy attitudes and good habits for a lifetime. They include sections on coping skills, stress management, positive thinking, mindfulness, exercise for enjoyment, and daily journals.
