The Smallest of Interactions Hold the Key to Building Girls’ Resilience, Strength, and Happiness

LOVELAND, March 9, 2016: It’s impossible to protect your daughter from all of life’s pitfalls.  But in an age fraught with negative influences---bullying, depression, drugs, self-harm---it’s critical to help your daughter become strong and resilient. Professional clinical counselor Fran Hendrick’s new book, Raising Joyful Rebels: A Guide for Moms, shows how, through your relationship with your daughter, you have the unique opportunity to inspire her to know her own greatness, bounce back from hurt, and live exuberantly.

You can spot a joyful rebel in a crowd. Her authenticity sparkles, and she knows her own value. She’s the girl who throws herself into life, whether she’s studying chemistry or building a treehouse. She’s the one who smiles at the classmate who’s being excluded and invites her in. She’s the adolescent who bravely says no when her friends want to drink and drive.

It is the small moments of everyday life that either build self-worth—or erode it. Raising Joyful RebelsA Guide for Moms, shows moms step by step, with an abundance of examples, how to capitalize on everyday interactions so girls experience being heard, understood, accepted, championed for their efforts, validated, and given the leadership they need to bloom.

Written for moms of girls of all ages, the step-by-step Joyful Rebels approach will change the way you think about yourself and what it means to be a mom. You’ll gain the insight and skills to transform your relationship with your daughter while learning strategies for teaching boundaries, persistence, values, optimism, leadership, and more just through the brief interactions you have every day.

It takes a quiet, powerful certainty about yourself to allow your daughter the freedom to express and to be all that is within her. As you learn to elicit, amplify, and nurture your daughter’s unique voice, you will strengthen your own. Offering a lucid, inspiring window into your daughter's inner world and emotional development, the Joyful Rebels journey is your chance to do something for yourself that can simultaneously change the course of your daughter’s life.

Included: Online access to the companion 154-page interactive/downloadable Joyful Rebels Journal that brings the approach to life with a complete set of interactive tools and games to use with your daughter, and guided writings to lead you on a journey of your own.
