Helping Girls Succeed in Relationships, Academics, Careers, and Life

Second Edition

Be the caring and positive force that girls need

Social media, friendships, dating culture, academic pressures, bullying, self-concept, fear of failure… These are just a few of the complex challenges facing adolescent girls. In a world that is changing rapidly, it can be difficult to know how to foster effective communication and provide authentic support for the girls that we teach, parent, mentor, and coach.   

The newly updated edition of Girls Without Limits offers relevant insights and concrete strategies that will help you: 

Understand the unique challenges girls face, including relationship troubles, social and academic pressures, disrespect and harassment, body image, academic and career choices, and becoming leaders 
Teach girls the skills they need to safely and confidently navigate social media and other evolving technologies
Empower girls with the skills they need to establish healthy and supportive relationships, build a strong sense of self, and develop the confidence they need to confront negative societal expectations and make healthy, positive decisions 

Combining relevant research, findings from a large-scale national survey of more than 10,000 girls, and the voices and experiences of today’s adolescents, Girls Without Limits equips educators, parents, school counselors, mentors, and coaches with the skills and strategies they need to build solid relationships, handle difficult conversations, and cultivate a generation of girls who are strong, capable, confident, and successful.
