Rooted, Resilient, and Ready by Lindsay Sealey

Rooted, Resilient, and Ready

Empowering Teen Girls as They Grow

Today’s teen girls face enormous pressures, such as the demand to be both beautiful and successful and the addictive lure of social media. These pressures can result in personal dissatisfaction, low self-esteem, and mental health issues. In Rooted, Resilient, and Ready, Lindsay Sealey, author of Growing Strong Girls, shows parents and caregivers how to guide their teen girls from lost and let-down to fierce and fearless. She flips the script to look at the lives of teen girls from the inside out, weaving interviews with teens and their parents along with practical advice and her experience as an empowerment coach.
