The “Ten-Ager” with Author Madonna King – Digital Family Podcast

The “Ten-Ager” with Author Madonna King – Digital Family Podcast

Madonna King is one of Australia’s most accomplished journalists, having won awards for her ABC Mornings current affairs program. She writes across Fairfax, Crikey and The New Daily, and is the author of ten books, including the bestselling Being 14 (ABIA shortlisted for non-fiction book of the year), Fathers and Daughters and now Ten-ager. Madonna King has an extraordinary ability to connect with experts, schools and the girls themselves to deliver the answers parents need and the communication our girls want.

With heightened pressure from what they see in the media, in movies and on TV, our girls are leaving childhood behind well before they hit their teens. Not surprisingly, emotions can be heightened and relationships can be fraught. So many parents struggle to understand the pressures our girls are under and how to deal with their emotional volatility. Journalist and social commentator Madonna King has an extraordinary ability to connect with experts, schools and the girls themselves to deliver the answers parents need and the communication our girls want.

In todays podcast Madonna and I chat about why 10 year old girls seem to be starting puberty earlier. The influence of media and the digital technology on how younger girls see themselves. The peer group pressure around fitting in and getting online.

TEN-AGER is the perfect guide to help parents understand how their daughter is feeling, what they need to know, what to say, and when to stay silent and listen.
