Here is a quick preview of Katie Hurley’s talk from the Positive Parenting Conference 2018.
In this talk titled How to Keep Our Daughters from Falling Victim to the Perfect Girl Syndrome, Katie and I discuss:
- How the definition of perfectionism has changed in the recent past
- How this impacts our kids, in particular, our daughters
- Several different activities to help our daughters break free for the expectation to be a “Perfect Girl”
If you are a perfectionist, or are seeing signs of perfectionism in your daughter, then you don’t want to miss this talk. While our focus for a big part of the conversation was on how perfectionism impacts our daughters, those of you with sons who may be perfectionists will likely find this talk very helpful as well! (Note: I had some tech issues with this recording, but because the content is so powerful I decided to keep it – I hope the recording quality doesn’t interfere with what you take away from this incredible talk!)
