Many girls are staggering under the pressure of jam-packed schedules, hours of homework, heightened expectations, demanding social lives and far too little sleep. Maturing into a successful young woman is full of stressors and girls in this generation are pioneers in learning how to make it all work and still become successful both inside and outside of the classroom.
Their anxiety level is only heightened by the unrealistic standard of what it means to “have it all." This class is designed to help you understand the new culture of girls today as well as strategies for helping them achieve their dreams.
This course is appropriate for K-12 teachers, administrators, support staff and parents.
