About Girlhood

How to raise our girls to be happy, healthy and heard.

According to Maggie Dent, Australia’s queen of common-sense parenting, how we parent our girls from birth to 8 will determine their path as teens and young women. Without the right foundations, girls often struggle with anxiety once they hit puberty, becoming addicted to devices and developing an over-reliance on external measures of success rather than internal ones.

In her follow-up to the bestselling From Boys to Men, Maggie offers parents and guardians a common-sense and compassionate guide to raising our girls to become secure, connected and confident in their teen years and beyond. Advocating for free play, reduced scheduling, less screens and much more love, Maggie shows us how to best guide our daughters as they progress through childhood and navigate relationships, technology and real-world challenges.

Based on nearly 5000 survey results from Maggie’s community and packed with advice, insight and up-to-date research, Girlhood is the essential guide to raising our girls from Australia’s go-to parenting expert.


Commonly known as the ‘Queen of Common Sense’, Maggie Dent is one of Australia’s favourite parenting authors and educators. Maggie’s experience includes teaching, counselling, and working in palliative care/funeral services and suicide prevention. An in-demand writer and speaker, Maggie is a regular contributor to Fairfax’s Essential Kids website and she frequently appears on national radio and television. Host of the ABC’s Parental As Anything podcast, she is the author of six books.

Maggie is the proud mother of four wonderful sons, and an enthusiastic and grateful grandmother. She lives in NSW with her good bloke Steve Mountain and their dear little dog, Mr Hugo Walter Dent.
