Parent Seminar Series: Ten-ager with Madonna King

parent seminar banner
You are warmly invited to our first Parent Seminar Series event for 2023: Ten-Ager with Madonna King. What your daughter needs you to know about the transition from child to teen.

The bestselling author of Being 14 and Fathers and Daughters shares what your daughter needs you to know about her shift from child to teenager – how she feels, what she thinks, what worries her and what you can do to help.

Award-winning journalist, commentator and author Madonna King sought the counsel of 500 10-year-old girls, 1,600 mothers, and 100 Year Five school teachers for her new book, Ten-ager. Dozens of school principals, teen psychologists, doctors, researchers and female role models were also interviewed to provide a guide for parents helping tween daughters into adolescence.

Turning 10 used to be a “double-digit” celebration; now it is the beginning of the teen years. Ten-ager takes our girls’ dreams and worries, wants and fears and puts them to the experts, in the hope it helps parents guide their daughter into adolescence.

This is the perfect guide to help parents understand how their daughter is feeling, what they need to know, what to say, and when to stay silent and listen.
