Helping your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and the New Realities of Girl World
Wiseman, Rosalind (Book - 2009)
Queen Bees & Wannabes

Item Details

When Rosalind Wiseman first published Queen Bees & Wannabes , she fundamentally changed the way adults look at girls' friendships and conflicts-from how they choose their best friends, how they express their anger, their boundaries with boys, and their relationships with parents. Wiseman showed how girls of every background are profoundly influenced by their interactions with one another. Now, Wiseman has revised and updated her groundbreaking book for a new generation of girls and explores: •How girls' experiences before adolescence impact their teen years, future relationships, and overall success •The different roles girls play in and outside of cliques as Queen Bees, Targets, and Bystanders, and how this defines how they and others are treated •Girls' power plays-from fake apologies to fights over IM and text messages •Where boys fit into the equation of girl conflicts and how you can help your daughter better hold her own with the opposite sex •Checking your baggage-recognizing how your experiences impact the way you parent, and how to be sanely involved in your daughter's difficult, yet common social conflicts Packed with insights about technology's impact on Girl World and enlivened with the experiences of girls, boys, and parents, the book that inspired the hit movie Mean Girls offers concrete strategies to help you empower your daughter to be socially competent and treat herself with dignity.
