The popular media has revealed the alarming lack of resilience, optimism, and self-efficacy in most young girls, especially when they reach adolescence. Mothers are looking for the right tools to help their daughters develop attitudes and behaviors that will allow them to thrive. In How to Mother a Successful Daughter, Nicky Marone, international speaker, former educator, and author of How to Father a Successful Daughter, teaches women, whether corporate executives or homemakers, how to mentor their daughters and become positive role models. The girls, then, will be better prepared for the future, having learned the emotional and intellectual skills necessary to be economically and emotionally self-sufficient.
As a result of her research and workshops, Marone has developed a unique program that shows how to deal with many different real-life situations, including suggestions for mother/daughter projects and ways to combat sexist cultural messages in the media, at school, and at home. Mothers learn strategies for teaching girls "mastery-oriented" skills for avoiding the internalization of failure, tolerating confusion and ambiguity, and developing alternative plans to reach a goal. How to Mother a Successful Daughter is filled with hands-on, usable tips with age-appropriate advice for preschool, school-age, and teenage girls. This is an invaluable resource for parents who want their daughters to have the emotional and intel-lectual skills necessary to be self-sufficient, competent--and happy--adults.
