Join us for an informative Q/A with Rachel Simmons, educator, coach, international speaker, and author of the recently re-released bestseller Odd Girl Out, on the hidden aggression of girls and the often brutal race to be popular.  Find out why competitiveness and anger are so hard for many girls to own up to, and how they cope.  How can parents help their daughters to manage their negative emotions without resorting to bullying, depression, or anxiety?

The discussion will have a special focus on how being overweight or afraid of being "fat" affects girls' status and self-esteem.   Find out the three meanings behind the coded term "I'm so fat" and what girls really mean when they say it to each other.
