Communicating With Your Growing Daughter

Talking with your daughter can be difficult, but knowing the right words can help. How do you broach tough subjects like peer pressure and cliques? How can you help her improve her sense of self-esteem? What’s the right thing to say – and what should you avoid saying? Join us for a presentation and Q&A with Nancy Gruver on how to communicate with your growing daughter at various life stages.

About the Presenter
Nancy Gruver is founder of the groundbreaking international online community and magazine for girls ages 8-12, New Moon Girls, the author of How To Say It® To Girls: Communicating With Your Growing Daughter (Penguin Putnam, 2004) and blogs on girls’ issues, parenting and media. She is a national leader in using media to develop girls’ full potential. As pioneered by Gruver at New Moon Girl Media, Inc., truly collaborative work by girls and adults is an innovative counterbalance to societal pressures that lead many tween and teen girls to abandon their dreams and silence their voices.

This parent education event is free and open to the public.
No RSVP is necessary. 
Please join us!

Shady Side Academy and WQED are partnering to bring Nancy Gruver to Pittsburgh.


From Route 28, get off at the Fox Chapel exit. Turn left onto Fox Chapel Road, heading northeast, for about 1 mile. Turn left onto Squaw Run Road (Fox Chapel Road is closed at this point). After about .5 miles, turn right onto Field Club Road. After about .5 miles, at the light, turn left onto Fox Chapel Road. Shady Side Academy is on the right, after about .25 miles.

Enter through the Shady Side Academy gate, and continue up the hill to the stop sign. Turn right and follow the road to the next stop sign. Go straight through this stop sign and bear left around the bend. At the yield sign, bear a right and start down the hill. The first road on the left takes you to The Hillman Center parking lot.
