Raising Girls Who Like Themselves




The seven qualities that enable girls to thrive in a world that tells them they are flawed

When you raise a girl who likes herself everything else follows.

She will strive for excellence because she has faith in her ability to achieve it and the confidence to pick herself up.

She will nurture her physical and mental health because it's natural to care for that which you love.

She will insist on healthy relationships because she believes she deserves nothing less.

She will be joyful and secure, knowing that her greatest friend and most capable ally is herself.

Raising Girls Who Like Themselves details the seven qualities that enable girls to thrive and arm themselves against a world that tells them they are flawed. Packed with practical, evidence-based advice, it is the indispensable guide to raising a girl who likes herself.

Free of parental guilt and grounded in research, Raising Girls Who Like Themselves is imbued with the warmth and wit of a mum and dad who are in the same parenting trenches as you, fighting for their daughters’ futures.
