My talk at Ballenas Secondary School

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

April 2011,

Dear Kaycee,

“Thank you” just does not seem adequate enough to convey how we felt about your Frog or Prince: The Smart Girl’s Guide to Boyfriends’ presentation to the parents of School District 69. Your incredible knowledge and straight forward approach to relationships was appreciated by the parents and students in the audience.

I had no doubt that you would be fantastic on this topic as I had seen your presentation at the BC School Counsellor’s Fall 2010 Conference but I was impressed with your continued research and wealth of information. You had the audience engaged (which is not an easy task with multiple generations) and entertained throughout the evening. Many parents commented that this information could not only be applied to their daughters but also to their sons and themselves. Everyone in attendance appreciated all the resources that you provided and they left with increased knowledge and skills that they could easily implement.  Here are some comments that I obtained from parents who were in attendance:

  • The research on healthy relationships for youth was reassuring and helpful both as a youth worker and a parent
  • Kaycee’s presentation and book helps makes sense of the pitfalls of relationships and how girls (and women) can overcome them and get what they really deserve! 

It was such a pleasure to meet you again. Your dedication and passion towards educating youth on healthy relationships is evident in everything that you do. I look forward to future presentations and implementing your information regarding healthy relationships with girls in our community.

Many Thanks,

Shannon Confortin, B.Ed, M.C.

We know about the consequences of not talking to our daughters about sex. What about the consequences of not talking to our daughters about healthy relationships?

Researchers have found that dating experiences affect teens’ development, both positively and negatively. Negative consequences of bad dating experiences range from concerns about body image to feeling anxious, to being depressed, to substance abuse, to setting the stage for adult unhealthy relationships.

Here’s the fundamental problem: teens, almost by definition, lack information and relationship skills. And abstinence—or its opposite—teaches you little about relationships.
Researchers have found some teens can identify things that make for a healthy relationship—mutual respect, trust, good communication, for example—but do not know how to build healthy relationships. It’s difficult to apply concepts to real-life situations.

Beliefs influence actions. Our daughters have lots of beliefs about relationships. But do these beliefs really help them get out of a relationship with a Frog and get into one with a Prince? Having the following four beliefs is evidence of a healthy relationship: “I know and like myself” (I’m building myself a beautiful life); “I know and like him” (He’s a great guy); “My boyfriend is the draw for me” (I really want to meet his needs); and “I am the draw for him” (He really wants to meet my needs). If your daughter believes all of these are true, she’s in a healthy, compatible relationship.

I’ve aggregated the latest research about teens and romantic relationships, and translated the information and tools from “frog or prince? The smart girl’s guide to boyfriends” to help parents (and anyone dealing with teens) find new ways to talk about what makes for a healthy relationship. A girl cannot make a good boyfriend choice without enough self-knowledge and self-respect to do so.
