Raising Worry-Free Girls: Helping Your Daughter Feel Braver, Stronger, and Smarter in an Anxious World
If you have a daughter, it would be surprising if she doesn't struggle with anxiety and worry--either in short episodes or for longer periods. For a variety of reasons, childhood anxiety rates are soaring, especially among girls. Today's parents need to know what contributes to anxiety and worry and how they can empower their daughters to overcome troubling emotions.
In this immensely practical book, veteran counselor Sissy Goff shares how you can instill bravery and strength in your daughter. Addressing common age-specific issues, Goff gives you the tools to help you and your child understand why her brain is often working against her when she starts to worry, and what she can do to fight back. With your help, she will find the anchoring truth of God's strong, safe love for her and the confidence she needs to thrive.
"I'm thankful that God has Sissy Goff in this world to come alongside girls and young women where they are as worriers and grow them gracefully with grit into warriors."--ELISABETH HASSELBECK, author of Point of View
MY REVIEW: "Girl Power" (empowerment) is so very important to build self-esteem, encourage self-confidence, and reduce the stress of peer pressure and help to overcome the fear of bullying. "Raising Worry-Free Girls: Helping Your Daughter Feel Braver, Stronger, and Smarter in an Anxious World" will help girls and their parents find confidence in who they are now and hope for who they will become--both as individuals and as families. Author Sissy Goff has divided the book into three sections: "Understanding"; "Help"; and "Hope". Sissy advises that, down to the smallest of worriers, "we are clearly living in an anxious world". With more than twenty-five years experience in counseling children and teenagers, she has observed a marked increase in worry and anxiety in young people, which also means an increase in stress for parents and guardians. This book offers a variety of coping techniques and self-boosting strategies aimed toward ages 6 to 18, but parents and guardians who may very well suffer from the same anxieties as their children will also find them helpful.
