Workshops and speaking engagements:
Self-esteem or lack of it begins early. Children get criticized and learn to be critical. They get teased and learn to feel victimized. They see parents who do not love themselves and believe they aren’t lovable either.
When we can start at the very beginning, with an understanding of always being lovable, then we can make mistakes and it’s ok. I wrote the books Whole Heart for Girls and Whole Heart for Boys to help parents begin to discuss self-esteem with their children at a younger age, by reading about it, discussing it and hopefully demonstrating it.
Dr. Stark offers WHOLE HEART FOR GIRLS workshops and presentations for parents, teachers, and girls (ages 6-12) or young women (ages 13-21). Call to schedule (714) 547-1456
