Rosalind Wiseman has spent more than a decade listening to thousands of girls talk about the powerful role cliques play in influencing what they wear and say, how they feel about school, how they respond to boys, and how they feel about themselves. In this groundbreaking book that takes you inside the secret world of girls' friendships, Wiseman discusses:
•Queen Bees, Wannabes, Targets, Torn Bystanders, and others: how to tell what role your daughter plays
•Girls' power plays, from birthday invitations to cafeteria seating arrangements
•Good popularity and bad popularity; how cliques bear on every situation
•Hip Parents, Best Friend Parents, Pushover Parents, and others: examine your parenting style, and learn how to relate to your daughter
Revised and updated with new material on situations with younger girls, how to account for new developments in technology, and enlivened with even more voices of girls and parents, Queen Bees and Wannabes offers the tools you need to help your daughter feel empowered and make smarter choices.
