educator, and an adult woman living with anxiety, I recognized many of the patterns Lisa Damour described Like, damn Lisa Stop telling everyone my life I even think it s a good companion read to the highly excellent Odd Girl Out The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls.This is pretty readable for a parenting education book At times, it can sound a little mom to mom, but the tone is generally reassuring and avoids platitudes It is meant to equip parents with language to address low to midlevel stress behaviors, such as catastrophizing For high level behaviors, consult Odd Girl Out The Hidden Culture of Aggression in Girls Girls fret quietly while boys act out, because we ve socialized them this way Internalized worry is creating thorny mental health problems, resulting in peculiar or dramatic behaviors As an educator, I also appreciate that Damour acknowledges that prejudice in the classroom is real and causes girls significant distress Distress affects performance Children cannot learn while they are afraid, it s neurologically impossible Girls work extra because they are afraid In one chapter, she describes how school is designed to be a confidence factory for boys, because they consistently aim for the lowest amount of input for the highest reward Girls overwork themselves for the same reward, so they start learning incorrect ideas about lots of work equaling a high reward It s crazy but true Recommended for teachers, parents, women living with anxiety, loved ones wanting to help a femme in their life cope with fear flag 1 likeLike see review Jan 22, 2019 R
