- Two things that parents can do at home to build confidence and nurture girls’ ability to speak up according to Porges are to have them practice ordering for the family, and to encourage them to develop a pitch when making a request.

The ability to speak up, ask for what they want, and to use their voices confidently will be valuable skills for these future entrepreneurs and CEOs.
