Sleeping Beauties, Awakened Women
Guiding the Transformation of Adolescent Girls
There has been a tremendous amount of attention paid to the rising levels of depression, anxiety, cutting, and relationship aggression in girls over the past 50 years.
- But what if these issues aren’t the real problem? What if adolescent girls don’t have poor self esteem?
- What if we’ve got it all wrong?
- What if we have missed the forest for the trees?
In this eye-opening book based on 30 years of successful work with girls, Dr. Tim Jordan M.D. shines a light on what is really going on with girls as they undergo their normal transformation from girl to woman during adolescence. Using fairy tales and real stories of girls from his practice and camps, Sleeping Beauties will help you become aware of the needs girls have in areas like emotions, friendship struggles, self-quieting, finding their passions, body image, and stress. And he shows how parents can best support their daughters during this crucial stage of development.

Loving your book! The way that you write is wonderfully conversational, and especially for a subject like this, it makes everything accessible. It is wonderful for me to read a book that ‘speaks my language’. All of the examples are terrific!”
This book is a Game-Changer! I really enjoyed this book and I would guess that most father’s of young girls/pre-teens/teens know little about the obstacles and anxieties they face everyday. I know I didn’t. In any event, the book was a big-time eye-opener for me and a tool I will revisit often.
