avoiding the confidence drop
It's a sad fact that research shows confidence in girls drops by an enormous 30% during adolescence. Those wonderful feisty children become anxious worriers - self conscious and afraid to be their best self in case others dislike them for it.
Boys as a group don't have the same problem - confidence rates stay much the same so why is it that girls change so dramatically, and what can we do to help them stay brave and confident in their own abilities, likeability and personhood?
This two hour workshop is not about managing anxiety - there are other workshops for that, this workshop is for parents of girls between 10 and 14 years old who are noticing confidence changes in their daughters or who simply want to know how to help their young women grow into fearless young adults.
We'll be looking at why the changes happen, how they show themselves and how we can teach girls ways of managing their thought patterns and destructive behaviours such as self criticism, over reliance on the opinions of others for their self worth, overthinking and catastrophising. All set within a home in which resilience, self reliance and personal responsibility are modelled and celebrated.
