In June, Perseus enthusiastically releases two titles by British parenting educator Elizabeth Hartley-Brewer. In Raising Confident Girls, Hartley-Brewer argues that, although women do have a freedom that was unheard of 50 years ago, girls now face a sometimes unbearable combination of pressures. Her positive focus (""Model respect for women,"" ""Examine your expectations"" and ""Respect her feelings"") emphasizes the ways that parents and teachers specifically can boost girls' self-esteem.
