New softcover book, published 2009, 288 pages.

‘Our teenage girls are in trouble. Peer pressure, insidious marketing and unrealistic expectations of themselves have left them vulnerable and hutring. And while they may appear to be coping, behind closed doors many are silently imploding’

The grim picture of binge drinking, extreme dieting and alarming rates of STDs, self-harm and suicide among teenage girls is cause for concern. Caught in a relentless pursuit of impossible perfection, self-hatred has almost become a rite of passage for many of our girls - and it's starting younger and younger.

Danni wrote The Butterfly Effect to inspire parents to create their own new realities for their daughters. Talking to multitudes of girls every year in Australia and New Zealand, Danni’s message is authentic and passionate, and her book both celebrates and challenges the joy and beauty of teen girls in an age of raunch and consumer culture.

The Butterfly Effect offers practical, intuitive and powerful strategies, and uses humour to disarm and open up new ways of looking at self-esteem, resilience, body image, friendship, consumerism, navigating the online world, overcoming girls’ fear of failure and finding positive role models.

 Our teenage girls are in crisis, but by showing them love and standing behind them to offer support and a strong example, we can help them find their way again.

About the author:

Dannielle Miller is a major innovator and expert in the field of education and student welfare. She was responsible for the curriculum, staffing and quality of learning of the English faculty of a dual campus high school. As Students at Risk Coordinator for high schools in Western Sydney, she advised the Federal Government on funding for support programs for students at risk of dropping out.

The immensely successful Lighthouse Project was Dannielle’s brainchild. It pairs at-risk students with workplace mentors, helping them develop employment skills and discover the real-world relevance of what they learn at school. Another of her innovations was an accredited Higher School Certificate (HSC) course in service learning that she developed. The curriculum nurtures students’ entrepreneurial skills while involving them in meaningful community volunteer work.

Concerned about the struggles she saw countless high school girls go through with body image and self-esteem, in 2003 Dannielle co-founded Enlighten Education, which provides girls with training and support to stand up to limiting media and social messages.

Danni works with thousands of girls across Australia and New Zealand each year and makes regular media appearances to advise on teen issues. She is featured in education journals, her articles have appeared in The Sydney Morning Herald, and she is a popular speaker at youth and education conferences and forums. The Butterfly Effect is her first book.
