"The Myth of the Perfect Girl" by Ana Hamayoun
According to our next guest, in their efforts to juggle schoolwork and extracurricular activities, family life and social lives, friends, as well as relationships online and the real world, many girls begin to lose sight of who they really are, and instead work overtime to please their friends, parents, teachers, and others.
In her new book, The Myth of the Perfect Girl, Ana Hamoyoun presents advice to empower both parents and girls themselves to discover what true success and happiness means to them — and how to work to achieve it.
Ana Homayoun is the founder of Green Ivy Educational Consulting and the author of That Crumpled Paper Was Due Last Week: Helping Disorganized and Distracted Boys Succeed in School and Life and the new book: The Myth of the Perfect Girl: Helping Our Daughters Find Authentic Success and Happiness in School and Life.
