High school can be brutal. Many girls struggle to find what ‘group’ they fit into, let alone their own identity. Body image, emotional anguish and endless feelings of self-doubt can haunt a teenager – even into adulthood.
My guest today, Nordica Francis, serves as a teacher’s consultant for learning disabilities in high school teens. After 30 years of advising teens and their parents through the New Jersey public school system, she saw young, impressionable girls were consistently up against bulling from girls and manipulation from boys. Nordica is author of “RockStar Teenage Girl: SELF and Confidence Building for Tween and Teenage Girls”, a useful tool for parents and teen girls to directly deal with the source of their emotional and self-image struggles.
