The triple bind : saving our teenage girls from today's pressures by Stephen P Hinshaw( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,093 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In many ways, today is the best time in history to be a girl: opportunities for a girl's success are as unlimited as her dreams. Yet societal expectations, cultural trends, and conflicting messages are creating what psychologist Stephen Hinshaw calls "the Triple Bind." Girls are now expected to excel at "girl skills," achieve "boy goals," and be models of female perfection, 100 percent of the time--putting more and more girls at risk for aggression, eating disorders, depression, and even suicide. Dr. Hinshaw shows concerned parents how to listen, learn, and help girls unlock the shackles of the Triple Bind, discussing key topics, including: how internal conflict can turn self-expression into self-destruction; how traditionally feminine qualities like empathy, self-awareness, and verbal ability can put girls at risk for anxiety, depression, and other disorders; the oversexualization of girls; and the reasons girls are channeling pressure into violence.--From publisher description

The unhealthy truth : how our food is making us sick and what we can do about it by Robyn O'Brien( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 880 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Houston native and mother of four Robyn O'Brien was not someone who gave much thought to misguided government agencies and chemicals in our food--until the day her youngest daughter had a violent allergic reaction to eggs, and everything changed. This is both the story of how one brave woman chose to take on the system and a call to action that shows how each of us can do our part to keep our own families safe. O'Brien turns to accredited research conducted in Europe that confirms the toxicity of America's food supply, and traces the relationship between Big Food and Big Money that has ensured that the United States is one of the only developed countries in the world to allow hidden toxins in our food--toxins that can be blamed for the alarming recent increases in allergies, ADHD, cancer, and asthma among our children.--From publisher description
