An approach to help girls in early adolescence navigate the often troubled waters of friendship problems.

On the whole, girls are good and want to obey the rules, get on with everyone and be happy. However, they sometimes find that the search for trusting and reliable friendships is hard and that without such friendships they feel very unhappy. Their unhappiness is often displayed through tearfulness and even depression. Adults can help in only very limited ways because the problems within friendship groups are very fluid and difficult to express precisely.

The best way to find out more about the Girls on Board approach is to watch the 5 minute explainer video which you find on the Girls on Board website . You can also download a copy of the parent guide here.
