Product description

Review

"Enough As She Is shows parents, educators and girls what it means to try to achieve at almost any cost -- amplified by social media. That includes pressure to be admitted to just-the-right college -- and in some cases just-the-right high school -- coupled with unrealistic body-shape expectations."--USA Today

"Simmons tackles the "college application industrial complex," perfectionism, defensive pessimism, and other factors that undermine teenage girls' confidence and happiness... [Enough as She Is] persuasively demonstrates that girls can replace the toxic cultural imperative for "more" with their own vision of a fulfilled life." --Publishers Weekly

"Enough as She Is is a true gift for parents, teachers, or anyone else in a position to shape and educate the women who will run the world very soon. My copy is filled with sticky notes, exclamation points, and underlined sentences, and I know for a fact that the advice contained in this book will help me be a more aware, supportive, and effective teacher to my female students."--Jessica Lahey, New York Times bestselling author of The Gift of Failure

"Enough As She Is may save millions of women from the idea that 'having it all' means 'doing it all.' Women as well as men have the right to make choices that suit us uniquely, yet girls and women are more subject to external standards that we had nothing to do with creating. Rachel Simmons has given us the next step in our peaceful revolution: not only changing women to fit the world, but changing the world to fit women."--Gloria Steinem

"Is it wrong that I wanted to underline every single word in this book? Simmons brilliantly crystallizes contemporary girls' dilemma: the way old expectations and new imperatives collide; how a narrow, virtually unattainable vision of 'success' comes at the expense of self-worth and well-being. Enough As She Is a must-read, not only for its diagnosis of the issues but for its insightful, useful strategies on how to address them."--Peggy Orenstein, author of Girls & Sex

"Rachel Simmons is the expert on helping girls become leaders. In a world that too often tells our girls to be quiet, not assertive; deferential, not opinionated; meek, not bold; and insecure, not confident, Rachel says otherwise - and she has the advice and research to back it up. This book is a must read for girls who want to lead - and for the parents, teachers, and coaches who want to help them get there."--Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and founder of LeanIn.Org and OptionB.Org

"This book is a rare find for any parent or mentor of a girl child. It exposes the abject harm of today's perfect-at-any-price childhood, and illustrates how a girl's anxious, busy, self-deprecating performance strategy is entirely normal yet further harm-inducing. Packed with conversational specifics you can deploy with the teen girls in your life, this book is your chance to be who she needs you to be. Buy it. Read it. Live it. Help the girl you love realize the most important of all certainties: that she truly is enough as she is."--Julie Lythcott-Haims, author of the New York Times bestseller How to Raise an Adult, and Real American: A Memoir

"This is the book parents have been waiting for. With levels of stress, anxiety and depression soaring among children and teens, raising girls has never been more challenging. With Enough As She Is national girl expert Rachel Simmons gives families the tools they need to redefine success for their daughters so they can truly thrive."--Arianna Huffington

"A brilliant and passionate call to action that reveals how girls and young women are suffering in our toxic culture of constant comparison and competition. This is the book parents need to change girls' lives and guide them to truly become happy, healthy, and powerful adults."--Rosalind Wiseman, author of Queen Bees and Wannabees

"This book is an essential resource for educators committed to building girls' resilience as learners."--Carol Dweck, author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success and Professor of Psychology, Stanford University
