Today’s guest is Katie Hurley. She is a child and adolescent psychotherapist specializing in anxiety disorders and stress and learning differences and author. She is the author of The Happy Kid Handbook and No More Mean Girls. She runs empowerment groups for girls. We are discussing girls and their relationships. Join us!
"We have to load them with coping skills because life is hard."
"Teach them coping skills. Teach them how to be kindness warriors. Teach them how to engage in a positive way on social media so that other girls start to follow suit...."
"We owe it to our girls to stop labelling them and let them grow into themselves."
"The more we fail and the more we fail out loud and accept it and acknowledge it and talk about it with other people, the more we grow as humans."
"We have to stop this cult of perfectionism among our girls and the best way to do that is to really open up to them and tell them what we go through."

What does Joyful Courage mean to you?
To me, it just means being joyful about taking great leaps. It's okay wherever you land. Know that you're okay wherever you land and you can always make adjustments and give it another shot.
