EPISODE NOTES

With all the messages from the media thrown at girls these days, it’s no wonder that worry and anxiety in adolescent girls is on the rise. When you combine social media running the next teen’s “highlight reel” with pressure to achieve more in school due to standardized testing or parental pressure, it’s a recipe for increased feelings of being overwhelmed and thoughts of suicide. These things (and more) have put pressure on teens, and young girls, that previous generations never had to deal with. As a parent, what can you do to help your daughter deal with these things in a healthy way? Join Dr. Meg in a  conversation with Sissy Goff, Director of Child and Adolescent Counseling at Daystar Counseling Ministries in Nashville, TN. Sissy is also a sought after speaker, and author of 12 books including Raising Worry-Free Girls and Braver, Stronger, Smarter. Their conversation could have stretched on for hours because there’s so much to cover when dealing with these issues. Give this episode a listen, and you’ll be equipped to help your daughters cope with pressures from every angle.
