Helping your daughter define and sort widdle down who her authentic self is and what her authenticity is is critical especially these days. Social pressure is just a thick in the air. I'm mean the constant measuring up and comparing ourselves to others in the competition that these girls feel. Girls so much want to be liked and to be included and they will do almost anything to sort of figure out how they must please others as oppose to being excluded or shunt and it’s very dangerous thing because then there’s that pressure to become like a Facebook version of yourself, a persona not a person and I think it’s really important for girls to have that sense of self-worth in their own power.
