"The Myth of the Perfect Girl"

News Director Maryanne Zeleznik, proud mother of a young girl, spoke recently with Ana Homayoun, author of the recently released book The Myth of the Perfect Girl: Helping Our Daughters Find Authentic Success and Happiness in School and Life. The book makes the case that in our achievement driven, success at any cost lifestyle, even for junior high and high school girls, that the stresses of being the best, or seen as the best, is costing them to lose sight of their true identity. As author Susan Shapiro said of the book, "A smart, funny and engaging study on how to give girls the tools to figure out what they really want - and how to get it.  A must-read for girls, mothers, educators and anybody who wants to understand half the population."
