Helpful Websites For Parents

Thank you for searching for resources for teens. It’s so easy to find parenting resources when you are raising babies or toddlers, but it’s much more difficult when you are looking for resources for teens.

The 5 Love Languages

This quick quiz is incredibly insightful. I have clients take it, and then invite their parents to do the same. The outcome is a deeper understanding of one another which makes for even better relationships!

A Girl’s Life

http://www.pbs.org/parents/raisinggirls/girlslife/

Host, Rachel Simmons, has been studying girls’ relationships, behavior and psychology for more than a decade. Her bestselling 2002 book Odd Girl Out: the Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls started a widespread cultural conversation about girls’ psychological aggression and bullying. Her recently published new book, Curse of the Good Girl, traces the impact of our internalized ideas of “girlhood” on girls’ psychological development.

In A GIRL’S LIFE, Simmons goes back into the field to introduce audiences to four typical teenage American girls. The girls tell their own deeply personal tales of dealing with issues like cyber-bullying, body image and violence.

 

Miss Representation

Like drawing back a curtain to let bright light stream in, Miss Representation (90 min) uncovers a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see. Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the film exposes how mainstream media contributes to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media’s limited (and often disparaging) portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful.
