Helping Teen Girls Find Their Authentic Self

Helping Teen Girls Find Their Authentic Self

Teen girls are under enormous pressure from outside influences while navigating their way through an incredible transitional period in life. To help them feel empowered and equipped to handle this journey, Julie Feuerheerdt created The Dragonfly Movement.

The Dragonfly Movement consists of intensive workshops to help girls develop self-love, find their tribe, and create boundaries among other skills.

Julie and I sat down and talked about :

  • The pressure for perfection amplified by the age of social media and what we can do to help create boundaries to protect teens mental health.

  • The power in acknowledging and naming your inner-critic.

  • The importance of parents assessing where they place value of other women and in sharing their own vulnerability.

  • What it means for teen girls to find their tribe and create boundaries in their friendships.

  • How parents can take some pressure off teens and focus on the parts of life that are most important.
