BE­ING 14

Haven Magazine - - Front Page -

Madonna King Is your daugh­ter 14? Are you strug­gling to know what's go­ing on in­side her head? Are you wor­ried? This is the book that can help you un­der­stand how she's feel­ing, what she's think­ing and what you need to do to help her nav­i­gate her tricky teens to be­come a fab­u­lous woman. Lo­cal journo Madonna King has in­ter­viewed 200 14-year-old girls across the coun­try, talked to suc­cess­ful school prin­ci­pals, psy­chol­o­gists, CEOs, po­lice, guid­ance and neu­ro­sci­en­tists to re­veal the so­cial, psy­cho­log­i­cal and phys­i­cal chal­lenges every 14-year-old girl is fac­ing to­day. How much in­de­pen­dence do they need? What is the power of a friend­ship group? How do you help build self-con­fi­dence? Why the obsession with self­ies, so­cial me­dia and FOMO? How are par­ents un­know­ingly mak­ing life so much harder for them? Over­whelm­ingly, th­ese young girls - on the brink of wom­an­hood - strug­gle to tell their par­ents how they feel. That's why BE­ING 14 gives you the an­swers you are look­ing for. It's your daugh­ter, talk­ing to you. And her hope, be­yond any­thing, is that you will lis­ten. Blooms­bury, $14.99
