Girlhood: Raising our little girls to be healthy, happy and heard

The early years of a little girl’s life will shape her future in powerful ways.

In her new book Girlhood, Maggie Dent, Australia’s queen of common-sense parenting, has investigated the development period from birth to age eight.

In this live presentation, Maggie draws on nearly 5,000 survey results plus the latest research, and her own extensive experience as an educator, counsellor, facilitator, mum and grandmother, to show us how to help our girls build an emotional and psychological base for life. She will cover among other things:

  • social norms around girls and helping your girls develop their own sense of identify
  • the influence of temperament
  • understanding girls’ emotional world
  • navigating friendships
  • sexualisation, body image and health self-esteem
  • nurturing her spirit.. and more.

This will be both a deeply practical guide to raising girls birth-8 (and the content is definitely relevant to raising girls a few years beyond that too), as well as a celebration and reflection on the state of being female, which women of all ages will relate to.

Tickets: $35

Time: 6.30pm-8.30pm (doors open at 5.45pm)
