Rachel Simmons

When boys act out, get into fights, or become physically aggressive, we can't avoid noticing their bad behaviour. But it is easy to miss the subtle signs of aggression in girls. In "Odd Girl Out," Rachel Simmons focuses on these interactions and provides language for the indirect aggression that runs through the lives and friendships of girls.

Rooted in the extensive expertise she has developed since "Odd Girl Out" was first published as well as up-to-date research, Simmons offers a new chapter on technology, including a focus on cyberbullying and what parents and teachers can do to deal with the problem, as well as advice to girls on how to avoid drama online. Working directly from her experiences with schools and families over the past decade, she also brings us new classroom initiatives and step-by-step suggestions for parents. With illuminating, timely additions, this definitive resource is now even more relevant, still shining a powerful spotlight on the most pressing social issues continuously facing our girls.
