About the Event
Our friends at NAHS Theatre will be performing Mean Girls - the musical - this month (do not miss it!) so we thought it would be the perfect time to partner with the New Albany Theatre Boosters to bring an important discussion to our community.
Rosalind Wiseman’s book, Queen Bees & Wannabes, actually inspired the hit movie Mean Girls! It offers concrete strategies to help parents empower their daughters to be socially competent and treat themselves with dignity.
When Rosalind Wiseman first published Queen Bees & Wannabes, she fundamentally changed the way adults look at girls’ friendships and conflicts–from how they choose their best friends, how they express their anger, their boundaries with boys, and their relationships with parents. Wiseman showed how girls of every background are profoundly influenced by their interactions with one another.
This discussion will be facilitated by Emily King, a local therapist with Kovak Counseling. Emily specializes in eating disorders, self-esteem, depression, anxiety and life transitions for all ages. Emily’s own eating disorder recovery journey inspired her to become a counselor so she can help others grow and heal.

Queen Bees & Wannabes is in its third edition. Rosalind Wiseman has revised and updated her groundbreaking book for a new generation of girls and explores:
✨ How girls’ experiences before adolescence impact their teen years, future relationships, and overall success
✨ The different roles girls play in and outside of cliques as Queen Bees, Targets, and Bystanders, and how this defines how they and others are treated
✨ Girls’ power plays–from fake apologies to fights over IM and text messages
✨ Where boys fit into the equation of girl conflicts and how you can help your daughter better hold her own with the opposite sex
✨ Checking your baggage–recognizing how your experiences impact the way you parent, and how to be sanely involved in your daughter’s difficult, yet common social conflicts
