Can you describe how that helped you? My mother embarrassed me every day, it felt like, with her assertiveness. Anytime she spoke up for herself, I wanted to throw myself under a bus. It took years, but I finally realized that my own ability to assert my needs had come from watching her. My No. Does she see a woman who has sacrificed her feelings and her needs and her dreams for her daughter? Or does she see someone who is a caregiver but who also creates the space to assert her authentic self? How difficult is it for women who have not dealt with issues of courage and confidence to parent their daughters?

Like on an airplane, they say to put your own air mask on before you put one on your child. Know yourself before you start to parent. What is the role of fathers in this parenting? How is it possible for them to understand these issues?

I had so many confrontations in my youth with girls that became disasters because nobody had the skills to express difficult emotions and have a difficult conversation. It was actually only as I got older that I realized I had trouble asking for a raise.

I had a really hard time with constructive criticism and with making mistakes and as an adult understood that I was coping with the fallout from that pressure. That's why I wrote this book.

See a Problem?

Not just for girls, but so that girls don't have to grow up and become adult women who can't ask for raises. You talk about your mother's influence.
