Publisher's Summary

When you raise a girl who likes herself, everything else follows. 

She will strive for excellence because she has faith in her ability to achieve it and the confidence to pick herself up. 

She will nurture her physical and mental health because it's natural to care for that which you love. 

She will insist on healthy relationships because she believes she deserves nothing less. 

She will be joyful and secure, knowing that her greatest friend and most capable ally is herself.

Raising Girls Who Like Themselves details the seven qualities that enable girls to thrive and arm themselves against a world that tells them they are flawed. Packed with practical, evidence-based advice, it is the indispensable guide to raising a girl who is happy and confident in herself.

Free of parental guilt and grounded in research, Raising Girls Who Like Themselves is imbued with the warmth and wit of a mum and dad who are in the same parenting trenches as you, fighting for their daughters' futures.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Can’t recommend this book enough

It’s the first parenting book that didn’t leave me feeling absolute guilt for not having done the things recommended earlier. The book gives advice while at the same time making you feel normal and human and I wholeheartedly want to implement the advice with my daughter and daughter on the way. Thank you!

I listened twice

I found this book really helpful and practical. I let my daughter listen to parts and recommended it to many school mums. Highly recommend it to tween mums in particular.

Relevant and worthwhile

This book is well overdue, particularly given recent media reports on how girls and women continue to be treated, even in today’s society. It offers many actionable steps and ideas that I believe would be effective to help our daughters. For that I give it five stars. However at times it comes across as very preachy and lacking depth, particularly for different parent types and family situations. It is worthwhile wading through and cherry-picking ideas for your own family.

Not suitable for neuro diverse kids (or their parents)

If you have a neuro diverse child or a child with learning differences don’t bother with this book. Much of it will not apply to your child.

Incredible insights!

I would highly recommend this book to all parents and grandparents out there, not just parents of daughters.
The learnings you will take away from reading this book will aid in creating a better understanding of how we should approach and interact with children and how we can change the stigma surrounding girls and our society one step at a time.
As a proud father to an amazing daughter I will continue to read this book in future years and refine these new skills.
Thank you.

raising girls

Some good, general ideas for raising girls. No new or ground breaking information presented. I would have liked it to be based a lot less on their personal experiences.
