RELEASED 20th JANUARY 2020
PRE-ORDER from the 14th NOVEMBER 2019
What do teenage girls wish they could talk to us about? '
I'm sick of pretending to be happy all the time.'
'My face; if anyone is ever going to love me despite how grotesque my face is.'
'I sometimes don't want to be here.'
There has never been a better time to be a teenage girl. But perhaps there has never been a harder time. We know that connection is at the heart of our teenage daughters' happiness. And we do our best to have strong connections with our girls. But despite this, we often feel a disconnect. Or perhaps, more precisely, a mis-connect.
If you're looking to understand your teen daughter better and deepen your connection with her, this book is your guide. Drawing on cutting-edge psychology research along with interviews and surveys from close to 400 teenage girls, Miss-connection will take you into the world your teen girl experiences and help you connect with her the way she needs you to.
As the girls themselves set out the challenges they face - with social media, friends, boys, identity - you will find connection and solutions.
I predict a dog-eared, underlined copy of this book will soon be on the bedside table of every parent of a daughter! It's a must-have book not just for raising girls but understanding our daughter's inner-worlds.’

Trying to guide a teenage daughter through a complex adolescent world is… well, complicated. Alcohol and drugs, mental health concerns, body image issues, premature and/or non-consensual intimacy, and friendship challenges are just the tip of the iceberg.
Join me as I unpack the science and provide practical real world advice for parenting your teenage daughter. You’ll leave this presentation with simple and valuable tools and techniques to help you guide our daughters safely and successfully through adolescence.
You’ll discover what is really going on in the minds of our teenage daughters – how do they really feel and what do they wish you knew? Find out how we can stay connected to our daughters and keep them motivated, whilst also dealing with the eye-rolls and bad attitude. We’ll talk about how we can keep them safe and informed without them pushing us away; and how to encourage them to develop strong, healthy relationships and resilience, plus we’ll cover the best things we can do to support our daughters during this tumultuous time.
