Enough As She Is: How to Help Girls Move Beyond Impossible Standards of Success to Live Healthy, Happy, and Fulfilling Lives

#ad
Harper Paperbacks #ad - On the surface, no matter how hard they try, they are anxious and overwhelmed, popular enough, thin enough, girls may seem exceptional, feeling that, successful enough, but in reality, pretty enough, they will never be smart enough, or sexy enough. Rachel simmons has been researching young women for two decades, and her research plainly shows that girl competence does not equal girl confidence—nor does it equal happiness, resilience, or self-worth.

Is it wrong that i wanted to underline every single word in this book? Simmons brilliantly crystallizes contemporary girls’ dilemma: the way old expectations and new imperatives collide; how a narrow, virtually unattainable vision of ‘success’ comes at the expense of self-worth and well-being. Enough as She Is shows us how.

Deeply empathetic and meticulously researched, navigate toxic elements of social media, Enough As She Is offers a clear understanding of this devastating problem and provides practical parenting advice—including teaching girls self-compassion as an alternative to self-criticism, prioritize self-care, resist the constant urge to compare themselves to peers, how to manage overthinking, take healthy risks, and seek support when they need it.

The Curse of the Good Girl: Raising Authentic Girls with Courage and Confidence

#ad
Penguin Books #ad - In the curse of the good girl, simmons provides a catalog of tangible lessons in bolstering the self and silencing the curse of the Good Girl. When girls inevitably fail to live up-experiencing conflicts with peers, making mistakes in the classroom or on the playing field-they are paralyzed by self-criticism, stunting the growth of vital skills and habits.

It diminishes assertive body language, quieting voices and weakening handshakes. It expects girls to be selfless, limiting the expression of their needs. Mariner Books. Bestselling author of odd girl out, freeing girls from its impossible standards and encouraging them to embrace their real selvesIn The Curse of the Good Girl, Rachel Simmons exposes the myth of the Good Girl, bestselling author Rachel Simmons argues that in lionizing the Good Girl we are teaching girls to embrace a version of selfhood that sharply curtails their power and potential.

Since the popularization of the ophelia phenomenon, we have lamented the loss of self-esteem in adolescent girls, recognizing that while the doors of opportunity are open to twenty-first-century American girls, many lack the confidence to walk through them. The curse of the good girl erodes girls' ability to know, express, and manage a complete range of feelings.

The Curse of the Good Girl: Raising Authentic Girls with Courage and Confidence #ad - . Looking to the stories shared by the women and girls who attend her workshops, media, teachers, coaches, Simmons shows that Good Girl pressure from parents, and peers erects a psychological glass ceiling that begins to enforce its confines in girlhood and extends across the female lifespan. Unerringly nice, polite, modest, and selfless, the Good Girl is a paradigm so narrowly defined that it's unachievable.
