Summary:

Psychologist and physician Leonard Sax's work with young people reveals that girls today have an incredibly brittle sense of self. Though they may look confident on the outside, teens and tweens are fragile inside, obsessed with grades, sports, networking sites, and appearances. They are confused about their sexual identity, as environmental toxins are accelerating physical maturity faster than their emotional maturity.

Now, Sax gives us the tools we need to help girls become independent and confident women. He provides parents with practical tips on everything from helping their daughter make decisions to nurturing her spirit through female-centered activities to getting her involved in communities of female role models, which give young women pride and allow them to grow in a safe environment that nurtures curiosity and confidence.

"Leonard Sax brings together a rare combination of psychoanalytic training with a deep empathy for girls and their stories in this important book. His argument that girls are struggling to find their centers will resonate and his recommendations for how to locate them will inspire." Courtney E. Martin, author of Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters

    I found it a bit disorienting to have a female voice when the author is male. I consistently had to remind myself that when the language referred to the author, it was not the reader; further, her tones varied little and didn't engage my attention. The information regarding identity had very little new data; I did, however, find the environmental toxin chapters very enlightening.
