Raising Joyful Rebels: A Guide for Moms

Available from: Amazon: Paperback Edition and Kindle Edition Barnes & Noble: Nook Edition


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.

The “little things” are really the big things when it comes to building self-worth—or eroding it. Raising Joyful RebelsA Guide for Moms shows step by step, with an abundance of examples, how to provide a space where girls know that they will be heard, understood, accepted, championed for their efforts, validated, and given the leadership they need to bloom.

In an age fraught with negative influences—bullying, depression, drugs, self-harm—it’s critical to help your daughter become strong and resilient.

It’s impossible to protect your daughter from all of life’s pitfalls. But through your relationship, you can build her resilience, confidence, and self-worth so she can bounce back from disappointments, tough breaks, and even failures.

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. This highly readable guide shows you how to fill the three central roles of mothering—mirror, anchor, and mentor—in the small moments that make up everyday life.

It’s your journey, too. 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 how to use the magic of small moments 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.
