When girls need their community to build their confidence

Middle school is the time of life that is crucial to building confidence in girls. I spotted this article on social media about who impacts confidence, the words that matter, and what situations also help the process of learning to be oneself.

I know how often I was told I could not do things because I was a girl. Strangely the same rules did not apply to brother though adults did not state he could beat up any troublemaker (and not that my brother expressed a desire to do so). The implied notion that as a male my brother was strong enough happened around high school.
