Raising happy girls

Posted by crossfieldsinstitute in Uncategorised 20 Apr 2017

The author and childcare expert Steve Biddulph’s latest book is out today 20th April.  Following on from his book on raising boys the new book: 10 Things Girls Need Most To Grow Up Strong and Free,  tackles the possibly even trickier subject of how to raise girls.

There is a great deal of concern about girls health and wellbeing at the current time.  Much of this focuses on the way social media can work to undermine a girl’s confidence and set up damaging rather than empowering role models.  For a taste of the book’s central message have a look at the article by Lorraine Candy for the Sunday Times magazine.  This is available on Steve’s website.  There is quite a harsh message for parents here but see what you think, even if you don’t have young girls to raise.
