Parenting Teenage Girls in the Age of a New Normal
Michelle Mitchell | 9780648084525
Our girls have been born in a unique time in history.
They have been given experiences and opportunities which former generations could have only dreamt about, but they are also facing challenges which have not confronted any other generation in the same way. Entitlement. Irregular emotions. Obsession with social media. Disrespect. Premature discovery of sex. These are just a few of the issues that parents raising this generation of girls are dealing with.
In this book, teenage expert and author Michelle Mitchell draws upon decades of experience to reveal her top parenting strategies in response to the biggest issues impacting today’s teenage girls. These strategies have been developed on the frontline of Michelle’s extensive work with families and schools across Australia. Featuring straight forward and honest advice that really works, this book is a fresh and empowering resource for parents of teens and pre-teens.
Michelle established Youth Excel in 2000, a charity which helps young people make positive life choices during difficult times.
As a thought leader and national speaker, Michelle is highly passionate about inspiring parents, schools and community leaders to invest into the next generation.
In 2013 Michelle was awarded Inspirational Speaker of the Year by the Queensland State Government. Her work is regularly quoted in the media. She lives in Brisbane with her husband and two teenagers.
