PRAISE FOR LITTLE GIRLS CAN BE MEAN:
“More than ever, young girls are facing painful social challenges that require real skills to respond…offers useful strategies and tools to help parents empower their daughters from the earliest ages."
-Rachel Simmons, bestselling author of Odd Girl Out and The Curse of the Good Girl
“A valuable guide for understanding and demystifying the friendship issues, social cruelty, and bullying of elementary-aged girls. A must-have book for parents, counselors, and educators.”
- Rosalind Wiseman, bestselling author of Queen Bees and Wannabes
"From clinical studies to mainstream media, the problem of girl aggression has been the subject of growing concern, but most of the recent focus has been on middle- and high-school students, not on elementary-school girls. That's part of the problem, argue the authors of this reassuring guide, which offers practical tips and personal anecdotes aimed at alleviating female "relational aggression" in the critical early grades. In each chapter, the authors, both developmental psychologists, illustrate how adults can guide girls through a four-step process to identify and deal with tough social situations. Throughout, boxed activities for educators, parents, and girls themselves give the tide a highly interactive, proactive feel, and an appended section suggests ways that adults can apply the same techniques to their own lives. More than just invaluable advice about preparing girls to cope with bullying, gossip, and friendship riffs, these are empowering strategies for adults to communicate and connect with their daughters while they are at a highly receptive age and to help them develop resilient self-esteem before they hit the middle-school jungle." -- Booklist
I recommend this book to parents, teachers, and anyone who works with children.
Getting your child to open up and come up with ideas to assert herself and navigate through difficult situations is tough, but this book gives great coaching advice.
Very well written in easy to understand language with lots of realistic examples.
I think that this book is helpful to parents of both girls and boys! A great resource to keep on hand. Highly recommend!Published 1 month ago by Kindle Customer

Some of the advice in this book is terribly disturbing. Having two-tiered friendships is wrong for children. One party for the popular kids and another for the nice kid? Read morePublished 2 months ago by bonnyyew
