The relationship between teens and their parents is nuanced, complex, and often fraught with challenges. Today’s teens are struggling in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the level of anxiety and depression they are experiencing is off-the-charts. As with their adult counterparts, teen girls are grappling with a variety of gender-specific issues that are daunting, even for the most seasoned parent or professional.

Author and educator Kimberly Wolf has spent her career teaching girls how to move forward in a way that maximizes their potential, preserves their dignity, builds confidence, and gives them the tools to approach difficult conversations with parents and peers. Her new book, Talk with Her, is a veritable how-to manual, designed to help fathers navigate their relationships with their daughters and create lasting bonds that foster resilience, honesty, and positive social connections.

On November 6, 2022, Kimberly joins JWFA here in Atlanta for two interactive workshops – one for parents and one for high school girls – that will provide a blueprint for tough conversations, meaningful interaction, and concrete tools to help us strive for excellence rather than perfection.

  • 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm Interactive workshop for high school girls;
  • 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm Interactive parent workshop, followed by a book signing and dessert reception

Discussion themes include:

  • The connection between mental health, self-esteem and body positivity
  • Maintaining a focus on human strengths and qualities rather than gender-related goals
  • Establishing boundaries and reasonable expectations
  • Navigating a world steeped in social media, social activism & social justice
  • Fostering inclusivity and acceptance
  • Parenting by example as an ally

Kimberly Wolf has been championing the health and wellbeing of teenagers since she was 18, sitting on the quad at her Los Angeles high school, talking with my friends through broken hearts, crises in body confidence, fights with friends, and battles with perfectionism.

She has an undergraduate degree from Brown University, where her thesis on the history and evolution of sexual health content in SEVENTEEN earned honors in gender studies, and a have a master’s in human development and psychology from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Her approach blends integrative wellness with positive psychology and entrepreneurial leadership frameworks to equip today’s young people with the wisdom and skills they’ll need to succeed in their personal, academic, and professional lives after high school.

Kimberly’s work has been featured and promoted by platforms including Huffington Post, Forbes, NPR, The Representation Project, and Lately, she has been focused on closing the gender gap: teaching Kimberly Wolf’s Love Class (TM), an exploration of self-love, relational communication, and sexual health for high schoolers; helping fathers communicate more effectively with their teenage daughters, so young women are more prepared to succeed in their personal and professional lives, and collaborating with other media producers and entrepreneurs promoting gender equality around the globe.

Talk with Her: A Dad’s Essential Guide to Raising Healthy, Confident, and Capable Daughters is her first book.
