Sample Book Insights:
#1 The College Application Industrial Complex is a toxic system that demands that students excel at everything, and if they don’t, it can feel catastrophic. It leaves a lasting imprint on girls’ motivation, sense of purpose, and self-worth.
#2 The message your daughter is receiving is that she needs to be exceptional at everything she does, and she will be happy wherever she goes. However, this will make her feel like she is falling short, and she will never be able to stop to appreciate the scenery.
#3 The Complex can turn school into a clinical means to an end, and girls are more than willing to sacrifice their education in favor of getting into a good college.
#4 It’s important for parents to understand that their children are not slaves to the Complex. They can resist it, and they should be given the space and support to do so.
