Our daughters are performing as never before and outperforming boys. But, there’s a disturbing contradiction that parents and teachers should be aware of.
From the age of 8, girls’ confidence plummets and never recovers. Girls stop taking risks, and even raising their hand in class becomes a challenge. They become perfectionists who are terrified of failure.
If we want to raise a generation of speak-up, confident women, we need to get them comfortable with taking risks and being less perfect. This is book is for your daughters, with quizzes, scenarios and cartoons that will help them reach their potential.
