Are you a woman who cares deeply about what the future holds for younger women and girls?
Then you know how difficult it is to see adolescent girls from middle school through their early career years struggle with the challenges of our time: Unrelenting change. Confusing social media. Loneliness. Anxiety. Depression.
Step into your power as a natural mentor.
Make the difference only you can make.
Natural Mentoring is a nurturing and sustained shared relationship between adult women and girls or young women who are naturally in each other's lives.
Natural Mentors listen. They provide support, guidance, experiences, and encouragement in safe, trusting spaces.
Adolescent girls and young women are among the generation that will change the world. They aren't just any girls. They are the girls of our hearts: our daughters and nieces, our friends' daughters and our daughters' friends, our colleagues, students, and granddaughters.
It's time to fine-tune the role of Natural Mentor. If you're a caring adult in a girl's life, this book is for you. Through an integration of compelling stories of women and girls, brain development research, and a how-to guide for becoming a Natural Mentor, discover how close relationships with significant adults can provide a critical growth and support network.
