We do this nationally through Teen Conferences, expanding Globally to enable young people to share, learn and grow. Jenny Garrett Co Founder. Sandy Parris Co Founder.
I believe in educating our teens at a young age about who they are, how their minds work, what healthy relationships look like, how to make good choices when it comes to peer pressure around drugs, alcohol and smoking, how to stop the negative self chatter, how to like what you see when you look in the mirror, making the decisions not to sext and so many other vital topics. A one day workshop to help your pre-teen daughter navigate her way through the initial stages of becoming a teenage girl. Register for this workshop.

When a group of high school girls found out their male classmates were circulating a list that gave them a numerical rating based on their appearance, they said they initially felt betrayed and flooded with insecurity. But then they decided to do something about it, and in a remarkable show of unity and action, these young women demonstrated to their school and community that this behavior is no longer acceptable. While it's likely not the first time teenage boys have rated their female classmates, these female high school students at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School in Maryland came of age during the explosive MeToo movement that has upended the notion that "boys will be boys" forever.
An inability to understand that attention, when mixed with anxiety and issues around body image and self-esteem can make life difficult for teen daughters.
