#ad
Harcourt #ad - In odd girl out, rachel simmons focuses on these interactions and provides language for the indirect aggression that runs through the lives and friendships of girls. With advice for girls, and even school administrators, teachers, parents, Odd Girl Out is a groundbreaking work that every woman will agree is long overdue.

Every generation of women can tell stories of being bullied, but Odd Girl Out explores and explains these experiences for the first time. Journalist rachel Simmons sheds light on destructive patterns that need our attention. When boys act out, get into fights, or become physically aggressive, we can't avoid noticing their bad behavior.

Odd Girl Out: The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls #ad - . Without the cultural consent to express their anger or to resolve their conflicts, girls express their aggression in covert but damaging ways. But it is easy to miss the subtle signs of aggression in girls--the dirty looks, the taunting notes, or the exclusion from the group-that send girls home crying.

These exchanges take place within intimate circles--the importance of friends and the fear of losing them is key.

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

#ad
Harper #ad - Enough as she is sounds an alarm to parents and educators, arguing that young women can do more than survive adolescence. Enough as She Is shows us how. 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.

On the surface, girls may seem exceptional, successful enough, they are anxious and overwhelmed, pretty enough, popular enough, no matter how hard they try, thin enough, they will never be smart enough, but in reality, feeling that, 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.

Though young women have never been more "successful"–outpacing boys in GPAs and college enrollment–they have also never struggled more. As they spend more time projecting an image of effortless perfection on social media, these girls are prone to withdraw from the essential relationships that offer solace and support and bolster self-esteem.

Enough As She Is: How to Help Girls Move Beyond Impossible Standards of Success to Live Healthy, Happy, and Fulfilling Lives #ad - Deeply empathetic and meticulously researched, prioritize self-care, 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, how to manage overthinking, navigate toxic elements of social media, resist the constant urge to compare themselves to peers, take healthy risks, and seek support when they need it.

Backed by vivid case studies, and suffer from imposter syndrome, overthink setbacks, Simmons warns that we have raised a generation of young women so focused on achieving that they avoid healthy risks, believing they are frauds. They can thrive.
