Girls Without Limits

Helping Girls Achieve Healthy Relationships, Academic Success, and Interpersonal Strength

by Lisa Marie Hinkelman

"You just don't understand!"

Today's girls agree: adults don't "get" what's going on in their lives. Friendship drama, self-image, grades, dating, fear of failure—these pressures impose limits. More than ever, girls need adults who will be a positive force in their lives. This book's research, real-life stories, and action strategies will help you:

  • Understand the unique challenges girls face—social pressure, body image, boy trouble, academics, and career choices
  • Help girls develop skills and competencies to deal with these challenges
  • Empower girls to confront negative societal expectations and make healthy, positive decisions

In The Press

"Girls Without Limits is a welcome addition to books already on the market promising to help parents, educators, and staff working with girls to facilitate their healthy development. Hinkelman's advice, drawn from her own work with girls, is grounded in current research. While she emphasizes the important role that adults can and should play in helping girls reach their full potential, Hinkelman avoids characterizing girls as too vulnerable or needy. Instead she provides a roadmap for how girls and important adults in their lives can partner to foster girls' resilience during development."
