Girls like to have their accomplishments noticed, but sometimes the need for praise can spiral into a constant quest for perfection. Girls may have a propensity to do things not because they judge it to be right or helpful but rather to stay in people's good graces. The result is that they can become cut off from their own true selves. Praising Girls Well points the way to using praise in a manner that will boost a girl's inner confidence, help her to understand it's okay to make mistakes, and guide her to trust in her own judgment. Brimming with practical tips for everyday use, this is a handbook to revisit time and again for our girls' grandest-and smallest-successes.
