Psychologist and physician Leonard Sax’s work with young people reveals that girls today have an incredibly brittle sense of self. Though they may look confident on the outside, teens and tweens are fragile inside, obsessed with grades, sports, networking sites, and appearances. They are confused about their sexual identity, as environmental toxins are accelerating physical maturity faster than their emotional maturity. Now, Sax gives us the tools we need to help girls become independent and confident women. He provides parents with practical tips on everything from helping their daughter make decisions to nurturing her spirit through female-centered activities to getting her involved in communities of female role models, which give young women pride and allow them to grow in a safe environment that nurtures curiosity and confidence. Compelling and inspiring, Girls on the Edge points the way to a new future for today’s girls and young women.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Dr. Sax once again combines years of experience with compelling research and common sense to intelligently challenge the status quo of what it means to raise a healthy daughter. Girls on the Edge offers skills parents can incorporate to feel more competent with our girls and young women.” Florence Hilliard, Director of the Gender Studies Project, University of Wisconsin–Madison
“Written through real stories and supported by strong evidence in the fields of education, psychology, and the sciences—a MUST read.” Margaret M. Ferrara, PhD, editor of Advances in Gender and Education and associate professor, University of Nevada, Reno

His argument that girls are struggling to find their centers will resonate and his recommendations for how to locate them will inspire.” Courtney E. Martin, author of Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters
“Turn off your cell phones and computers, and read this book! You will connect with your daughter in new ways, and she will thank you.” Rabbi Sandy Eisenberg Sasso, author of God’s Paintbrush and In God’s Name
