About the eBook

Be the caring and positive force that girls need

Social media, friendships, dating culture, academic pressures, bullying, self-concept, fear of failure… These are just a few of the complex challenges facing adolescent girls. In a world that is changing rapidly, it can be difficult to know how to foster effective communication and provide authentic support for the girls that we teach, parent, mentor, and coach.   

The newly updated edition of Girls Without Limits offers relevant insights and concrete strategies that will help you:
