As we New Yorkers await private school decisions, some of us may now have a moment to reflect on other topics like, drumroll, raising powerful and confident daughters.

PBS Parents has an excellent new article on the topic:  Raising Powerful Girls  Thanks to Katharine Page of Westchester’s Confident Kid Club  for sharing this story which includes useful tips for helping girls grow into independent-thinking women.

Nancy Gruver, an inspiring feminist who founded the superb girls’ magazine and safe online community New Moon Girls, which lets girls publish their own creative content in print and online, maintains a parenting blog,  Her husband Joe Kelly, blogs at Dads and Daughters.  Both Nancy and Joe have devoted their careers to helping girls  develop their inner resources, character and resilience against negative cultural messages.
