In the New York Times article  "The Confidence Gap for Girls: 5 Tips for Parents of Tween and Teen Girls, " Claire Shipman, Katty Kay, and JillEllyn Riley offer advice for parents.
  • Encourage your daughters to take risks and move beyond what they know they already do well.
  • Take the fear out of failure.
  • Encourage your daughter to train her brain to think about possibilities (not diaster).
  • Be a role model for risk and failure.
  • Embrace the bumps.
