Girls on Track: A Parent's Guide to Inspiring Our Daughters to Achieve a Lifetime of Self-Esteem and Respect

No. 8773


by Molly Barker
Helping daughters get beyond worrying about their looks to achieve a lifetime of self-esteem and respect.

During adolescence, if a girl isn't careful, she can fall into a trap called the Girl Box—a place where the way she looks is more important than who she is, where having a boyfriend is worth giving up a piece of her identity. This is a very serious problem, one that can lead to substance abuse, eating disorders, early sexual contact, and depression. Now, Molly Barker, founder of the dynamic Girls on the Run® exercise program, has created a ten-week self-esteem-building plan that will instill resiliency in young girls and enhance their emotional, social, physical, mental, and spiritual health. The activities and lessons are designed for parents and girls to do together. (247 pp.)

"If you buy one book on parenting, make it this invaluable guide to building self-confidence, resiliency, and an independent, integrated life in our girls."
-Celia Straus, author of Prayers on My Pillow and The Mother-Daughter Circle

"A brilliant and effective tool that works for all kinds of girls . . . A much-needed resource that helps girls and makes the world better for girls and boys."
-Joe Kelly, president of Dads and Daughters, and author of Dads and Daughters: How to Inspire, Understand, and Support Your Daughter When She's Growing Up So Fast

"Intertwining running tips with psychological exercises on beauty, gossip, and emotion, Molly Barker reminds us all of the connections between the outer and the inner girl. In doing so, running becomes a metaphor, not of escape, but of strength, promise, and focus."
-Sharon Lamb, author of The Secret Lives of Girls
