I just had an amazing experience! I was honored to offer my 'B STRONG' presentation to a wonderful group of eighth grade young women at Fairview Middle School in Fairview, Pennsylvania! They are bright and talented and well on their way to growing into strong, independent, resilient women.
I spoke to them about resisting the media messages that tell them femaleness is all about sexuality. We talked about what they value in themselves and how they want to brand themselves. We talked about building a strong mind and a strong body.
I am so proud of these energetic young women. They took the "B Strong Pledge" and are taking the first steps to finding and celebrating their authentic beauty! You go, Strong Girls!
I am so thrilled to be working with this impressionable group of girls. I am looking forward to next week when I address the seventh graders! If you are interested in a presentation at your school please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org! I would be glad to design a program for your school!

I see this daily in our school settings. The numbers of girls experiencing mental health issues centering on low self-esteem, depression, and eating disorders are on the rise. Where is this coming from? Are the social pressures to be thinner, sexier, and boy-obsessed having an influence? Is the fact that these messages are not only being sent to our teens and pre-teens but also to our elementary-aged girls a factor? Who is to blame? The media? Parents? Schools?
Or all of the above?
Our society is changing rapidly. Our girls are not being taught to value themselves for their creativity, or their intellect, or their individualism, or their ability to do and think for themselves. They are being taught to value 'sexy' .
Isn't it time we take a stand and begin the task of sending new messages to our girls? As parents we can teach our girls what to value. We can encourage them to critically pay attention to what the world is trying to tell them is 'valuable' for them. We can and we must arm our daughters with the skills to be successful, strong women.
As parents we can be blamed or we can do all we can to undo these degrading, demoralizing messages. Check out this article at the link below and then download my free eBook. This one small step taken today will be one giant leap for your daughter's future.
