Reviving Ophelia

I highly recommend the book, Reviving Ophelia, by Mary Pipher and Ruth Ross for parents with young girls.  The authors do a great job of describing and demonstrating the ways in which girls are encouraged via the media to conform to a stereotype that requires them to disown much of their individuality. Often this results in girls who are depressed and/or anxious. 

I cannot express the importance of honoring our young girls for who they are rather than how they look,  what they wear or what they can do.
