Parents play a powerful role in helping adolescents make healthy decisions. If you think talking to your daughter is tough, or it makes you nervous, know that you’re not alone.

FITGirl, Inc. has collaborated with other local non-profit organizations and businesses to provide FREE resources to help make the transition through teenage years a little easier.

Self-esteem and body image are often at their lowest during teenage years. Youth can feel awkward, painfully shy, self-conscious and isolated.

This page provides resources to help you and your child maintain a positive perspective. It also includes many resources to help you deal with problems related to self-esteem, body image (e.g. eating disorders), and social shyness.


At Newport Healthcare, we believe in sustainable healing. We bring teens and young adults from self-destruction to self-esteem by treating primary mental health issues, addressing the underlying causes of high-risk behavior. We treat individuals ages 12–27 who are struggling with trauma, depression, anxiety, and/or co-occurring issues such as eating disorders and substance abuse. Through our clinical expertise and integrated care, we strive to help alleviate the stigma surrounding teen and young adult mental health. Learn More.




 Beyond simply providing information, we offer guidance and expertise tailored to your individual situation. We can help you understand behavioral issues and offer you ways to address them.

In addition, you’ll find guides on important parenting subjects that contain articles, videos, parent Q&As and more. We also offer downloadable tools to make your parenting life easier, as well as an opportunity to sign up for several free email series to help you with specific parenting challenges.

We also suggest you share the website with your children. This site is part of the Boys Town National Hotline and provides kids and families the opportunity to ask questions via phone, text, chat or email. It’s a great way to let kids ​know they’re not alone and that support is always available.
