#138: Raising Worry-Free Girls (with guest Sissy Goff)
Play • 41 min

With all the messages from the media thrown at girls these days, it’s no wonder that worry and anxiety in adolescent girls is on the rise. When you combine social media running the next teen’s “highlight reel” with pressure to achieve more in school due to standardized testing or parental pressure, it’s a recipe for increased feelings of being overwhelmed and thoughts of suicide. All these things (and more) have put pressure on teens, especially young girls, that previous generations never had to deal with. So, as a parent, what can you do to help your daughter deal with all these things in a healthy way? Listen to this episode, and you’ll be in a much better place to deal with those things! Dr. Meeker sits down for a great conversation with Sissy Goff, Director of Child and Adolescent Counseling at Daystar Counseling Ministries in Nashville, TN. She’s also a sought after speaker and author of 12 books including Raising Worry-Free Girls and Braver, Stronger, Smarter. Their conversation could have stretched on for hours because there’s so much to cover when dealing with these issues. Give this episode a listen, and get ready to help your daughters cope with pressures from every angle! Also, do you have a question for Dr. Meeker?
