Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and the New Realities of Girl World

by Rosalind Wiseman

Paperback, 2009



Do you feel as though your adolescent daughter exists in a different world, speaking a different language and living by different laws? She does. This groundbreaking book takes you inside the secret world of girls' friendships, translating and decoding them, so parents can better understand and help their daughters navigate through these crucial years. The author has spent more than a decade listening to thousands of girls talk about the powerful role cliques play in shaping what they wear and say, how they feel about school, how they respond to boys, and how they feel about themselves.

In this book Wiseman discusses the role your daughter might play and how to help her be herself, girls' power plays and how to handle them, good and bad popularity, parenting styles and how to identify how your own background and biases affect how you relate to your daughter, and offers resources with opportunities to follow-up on your own and with your daughter.
