              A guide to surviving and thriving in your daughter's teenage years. What is the best thing about being a teenage girl right now? 'My friends!' 'Independence!' 'Discovering who I am.' What is the worst thing about being a teenage girl? 'My friends.' 'Not knowing what the future ho...lds.' 'Pressure to be perfect and look a certain way.' What do teenage girls wish they could talk to us about? 'I'm sick of pretending to be happy all the time.' 'My face; if anyone is ever going to love me despite how grotesque my face is.' 'I sometimes don't want to be here.' There has never been a better time to be a teenage girl than today. But perhaps there has never been a harder time. We know that connection is at the heart of our teenage daughters' happiness. And we do our best to have strong connections with our girls. But despite this, we often feel a disconnect. Or perhaps, more precisely, a mis-connect. If you're looking to understand your teen daughter better and deepen your connection with her, this book is your guide. Drawing on cutting-edge psychology research along with interviews and surveys from close to 400 teen girls, Miss-connection will take you into the world your teen girl experiences and help you connect with her the way she needs you to. In Miss-connection, girls like yours articulate their challenges - social media, friends, boys, identity - so you can find solutions. Most importantly, Miss-connection will help you connect with your daughter - even when things don't go to plan.
