Raising Strong Girls: Advice from Juliet Starrett

Being a parent is one of the most rewarding and difficult tasks on the planet. There’s a lot of joy and a lot of anxiety.

One thing I think about a lot is that I only have so many years left before my daughter won’t want to spend her birthdays hanging out with me anymore. There’s a lot I want to teach her, so I don’t have much time to waste.

I wanted to learn how I can be better for my daughter as she grows into a young woman, so I got in touch with one of the coolest, most successful and badass women I know: Juliet Starrett. She’s the CEO of The Ready State, an attorney, and a champion athlete. She’s also a mother of two teen girls and has managed not to tear out all her hair, so she’s got a lot to say about parenting girls in today’s world.
