Psychologist and physician Leonard Sax’s work with young people reveals that girls today have an incredibly brittle sense of self. Though they may look confident on the outside, teens and tweens are fragile inside, obsessed with grades, sports, networking sites, and appearances. They are confused about their sexual identity, as environmental toxins are accelerating physical maturity faster than their emotional maturity.

What disappointed you about Girls on the Edge?

It is not nearly as good as the book: boys on the edge. This book has little scientific research data for backup. too many subjective theories. not very convincing.
