Girls today face an astounding degree of pressure to grow up fast. They yearn to connect, but sometimes this yearning turns into negative, even destructive behavioral patterns such as gossiping, being passive-aggressive or mean, becoming screen-addicted, or disengaging from school. It's heartbreaking to watch even the most confident little girls disconnect and lose their sparkle as they hit the preteen years.
In Growing Strong Girls, Lindsay Sealey reveals the tremendous power of connection to activate self-awareness, inner strength, and confidence in girls. It all starts with a nurturing and secure connection between you and her.
In this audiobook, you'll discover:
- Why she should avoid frenemies and create a circle of friends.
- How to set healthy boundaries and practice assertive self-expression.
- The truth about social media and screens.
- Social-emotional-learning strategies and lifelong learning habits you can implement at home.
- More than 250 conversation starters, stories, tips, and activities to cultivate connection.

Lindsay Sealey has given us a wealth of answers in her book Growing Strong Girls.” (Haley Kilpatrick, founder of Girl Talk and best-selling author of The Drama Years)

Thank you for this book. I feel empowered and informed. At a time when more and more children are anxious this can help us to better support and nurture girls empowering them to be strong and confident.
Great book but narration is quite distracting
Great book for ideas to help a girl self reflect. But why did Lindsey insist on narrating her book when she has a lisp. It's not a terrible thing to have by any means, but so distracting for a listener of an audiobook. with so many great narrators out there, I dont see what the added value was.
