“There has been so much reported over the last 5 decades about adolescent girls being more depressed, aggressive, and anxious, mostly because of the rise of cutting and other destructive behaviors among girls in this stage of life,” said Dr. Tim Jordan. “However, it’s important that people – especially parents – see these behaviors as more than mere symptoms of low self-esteem. In fact, for the last 50 years we have been getting it all wrong. This has really been all about our failure to understand what adolescent girls really need. If we don’t understand what they need, we won’t be able to give them the proper support to help them grow into confident and capable women.”
“Sleeping Beauties, Awakened Women: Guiding the Transformation of Adolescent Girls”, which is available at is based on Dr. Jordan’s 30 years of successful work with girls. The author uses the information and insight he’s learned to shine a light on the real issues that girls face as they transform into women during adolescence. Using fairy tales and real stories of girls from his practice and camps, Sleeping Beauties is designed to help parents and those who have been given the task of caring for young girls become aware of the needs they have in areas like emotions, friendship struggles, self-quieting, finding their passions, body image, and stress. In addition, the author shows how parents can best support their daughters during this crucial stage of development.
As Dr. Jordan continues, “Young girls don’t have to spend their adolescent years burdened with so many physical and emotional problems. It is possible for parents to raise successful women, but they often need guidance in doing so. This is exactly why I wrote this book. It is my hope that in working together we can change the story of adolescence for young girls and see a new generation of strong, successful women arise.”
