9780143004660: The Princess Bitchface Syndrome

A follow-up to Michael Carr-Gregg's hugely popular Surviving Adolescents. This time he focuses on the special trials of raising adolescent girls: what to do when your previously quiet, beautiful and loving girl-child morphs into a restless, rebellious stranger who behaves like a responsible adult one day and a spoiled brat the next. He also explains how and why the PBFS has come about - how adolescence today is complicated by new factors such as 'KGOY' (kids getting older younger), loss of community, rampant consumerism, obsession with sexuality and body image, confusing media messages and the power of cyberculture. But parents need not despair, because Carr-Gregg has lots of sensible and sanity-saving suggestions to offer.

Book Description Penguin Books Australia, Australia, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 162 x 138 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this hard-hitting book, Michael Carr-Gregg focuses on the special trials of raising adolescent girls today- what to do when your previously quiet, loving daughter becomes a restless, rebellious stranger who behaves like a responsible adult one day and a vampish brat the next. Part of the problem is that girls are becoming sexualised earlier, and their physical development is shooting ahead of their cognitive capacities. By the time they turn 13 they look like they re ready for anything - but they re not. Yet, argues Carr-Gregg, many parents are surrendering their authority and allowing their daughters to be fast-tracked into pseudo-adulthood. We appear to be losing it when it comes to parenting our girls and it s time to grab back the reins. This book is a must-read for every parent with an adolescent daughter.
