New insights and practical solutions for overworked and stressed-out girls and their parents.
In today's achievement culture, many girls seem to be doing remarkably well--excelling in honors and sports and attending top colleges in ever greater numbers--but beneath the surface, girls are stressed out and stretched too thin as they strive to be "perfect." In their efforts to juggle schoolwork and extracurriculars, family life and social lives, friends and frenemies, as well as relationships online and IRL (in the real world), many girls begin to lose sight of who they really are, and instead work overtime to please their friends, parents, teachers, and others.
With honesty, empathy, and a fresh perspective, "The Myth of the Perfect Girl "presents advice to empower both parents and girls themselves to discover what true success and happiness means to them -- and how to work to achieve it.
