GirlSpire is more than just a book for building self-respect and confidence during a time of rapid change and challenge in a girl's life. It inspires ACTION. If you're a young girl, it's about owning your own destiny, creating your own opportunities, and inspiring yourself and others in the world. From the moment we enter this world until the day we depart we are bombarded with information from ideas, advice, advertisements and promotions, to should's and shouldn'ts. As we age most of us learn to separate out what information is useful to us and what isn't.Now imagine you are a girl, and you are 8... the world looks very different. Your hopes and dreams can be built and crushed hour to hour, your best friend holds the key to some of your biggest decisions, and your life is ruled by... well definitely NOT you. Setting a solid foundation at 8 years old for how you can be and want to be and interact in this life seems impossible, but is more necessary today than ever before.It's a known fact that during adolescence, girls' self-esteem drops about twice as much as boys, with varying theories and statistics as to why. Is it body image? School? Family? Friends? All of the above? Laying the foundation for how we relate and maintain relationships with "all of the above" is what GirlSpire is all about. Taking action now to create, analyze, improve and maintain those relationships in a way that inspires and empowers young girls.
