In the world of parenting educators and psychologists, there are few more highly respected, followed and quoted than Steve Biddulph. His kind, realistic and constructive approach to parenting both boys and girls has prepared parents all over the world and made them aware of issues critical to parenting happy, confident children. He has explored the relationship between parents and their children from the cradle to teens. We spoke to Steve on Raising Girls and specifically on his new book 10 things Girls Need. We also spoke to local consultant Caroline Walker from Confident Teens on her take on the challenges of being a teenage girl in the UK today.
