An honest and reassuring guide to help young girls negotiate their early teenage years
Young girls entering puberty often experience a crisis of confidence which, if ignored, can lead to life-long issues. In THINK YOURSELF GORGEOUS, experienced agony aunt Anita Naik shows that low self-esteem and bad body image happens to everyone, no matter how they behave in public (including the most popular girls). And she demonstrates why it pays to love the real you, warts and all.
Focusing on issues of weight, beauty, peer pressure, stress, body image, puberty and emotions, THINK YOURSELF GORGEOUS will help young girls to understand why their idea of themselves is taking a downward turn, why it is natural for them to feel that way, and what they can do about it.
Packed with bodylicious tips, quotes from other teenagers and practical advice, it will address all the tricky areas that can damage a girl's confidence and help them learn to feel gorgeous inside and out.
