“Children growing up with lack of role models” January 6, 2011

Posted by Alex, Managing Director in Uncategorized.

There has been plenty of coverage in the UK newspapers of the launch of a new book by the Girls’ Schools Association (GSA).

Your Daughter is a parenting manual offering advice to parents about bringing up their daughters. The book covers issues including eating, divorce and social networking. Following on from a successful website www.mydaughter.co.uk, it was written to meet demand from parents.

Association president Dr Helen Wright, said parents were often under “tremendous pressure” as they struggle to bring up children alone in the face of modern commercial pressures. Dr Wright, who is also head of St Mary’s Calne, said teachers were increasingly seen as a source of advice for parents.

Gillian Low, head of the Lady Eleanor Holles School in Middlesex and former GSA president, appeared on the Vanessa Feltz radio show on BBC London 94.9FM to talk about the book. You can listen again here.
