Editorial Reviews

Review

“If you buy one book on parenting, make it this invaluable guide to building self-confidence, resiliency, and an independent, integrated life in our girls.”
—CELIA STRAUS, author of Prayers on My Pillow and
The Mother-Daughter Circle

“A brilliant and effective tool that works for all kinds of girls . . . A much-needed resource that helps girls and makes the world better for girls and boys.”
—JOE KELLY, president of Dads and Daughters
Author of Dads and Daughters:
How to Inspire, Understand, and Support Your Daughter When She’s
Growing Up So Fast


“Intertwining running tips with psychological exercises on beauty, gossip, and emotion, Molly Barker reminds us all of the connections between the outer and the inner girl. In doing so, running becomes a metaphor, not of escape, but of strength, promise, and focus.”
—SHARON LAMB, author of The Secret Lives of Girls

From the Inside Flap

During adolescence, if a girl isn?t careful, she can fall into a trap called the Girl Box?a place where the way she looks is more important than who she is, where having a boyfriend is worth giving up a piece of her identity. This is a very serious problem, one that can lead to substance abuse, eating disorders, early sexual contact, and depression. Now Molly Barker, founder of the dynamic Girls on the Run® exercise program, has created a ten-week self-esteem-building plan that will instill resiliency in young girls and enhance their emotional, social, physical, mental, and spiritual health. The activities and lessons are designed for parents and girls to do together and include

I just searched for books about running and kids.

Molly Barker's witty and down-to-earth language makes the book a hard one to put down.

I am a mother of a 7 y.o. girl and 4 y.o. boy. I bought this book simply because I could see my daughter heading towards the pitfalls of the "girl box". I just searched for books about running and kids. I ordered it used and it was in pristine condition. I didn't read any reviews nor did I know who the author was. Imagine my surprise when I opened it and it was signed by the author. But it wasn't until page 2, that I realized what I had. Girls on the Run is a program that I so desperately want my daughter involved in but she's not of age yet. Admittedly, I haven't even finished the book yet but I am excited to have some of the same strategies to work with at home until she turns 8. Molly's story is so real and inspiring!! What she's done and is doing is nothing short of phenomenal. I am looking forward to the knowledge getting out of my girl box and helping my daughter never get in hers!!!! Thanks Molly!!!

This is a great book for parents of young girls and boys as well as anyone else who works with kids. On days when things are rough, reread the stories Molly tells to remind you that you are making a difference. Thanks Molly!

I expected to read about Molly's experiences. I did not expect to have such a detailed, AMAZINGly well thought out program that I can use with my daughter. Can't wait for the snow to melt and start it up with her. I was so impressed, I'm applying to get our local school set up as a site for the Girls on the Run program.

I originally bought this book for my daughter. It is just as much for me! I read Tina's story and reduced to tears sitting at my lunch room table. I am Tina! I was Tina in fifth grade and I still am Tina. I totally understand the girl box. I can't wait to share this book with my daughter.
