The Popular Girls: Helping Your Daughter with Adolescent Power Struggles - 7 Steps for Flourishing (Paperback)
Every day adolescent girls face a complex and challenging social world influenced by popularity. As parents, we benefit from having the resources to help our daughters navigate times of difficulty and vulnerability, because with the right support, these experiences can also deliver girls with their greatest learnings.
In this groundbreaking book, clinical psychologist Dr Mary Kaspar, deconstructs popularity and its links to our girls' wellbeing. She illustrates how the type of popularity that most girls crave is not the type that will improve their lives. With insight and care, Dr Kaspar skilfully blends research and stories for a deeper understanding of social cruelty and advocates for change to benefit all girls.
The Popular Girls provides critical strategies and advice that will help girls increase their compassion and guide them towards nourishing friendships and meaningful popularity. A 7-step framework provides a clear pathway to help girls achieve the courage and openness necessary for real connection, flourishing and 'likeability', within the classroom and beyond.
