Girls are feeling the pressure, say experts.
A panel of leading children's experts and young people looked at the issues facing girls today in a recent research report, A Generation Under Stress?
They show that girls feel under pressure to do well academically due to regular testing in schools. One girl said: "You can't relax - there's always another set of exams around the corner."
And adult expectations are adding to the anxiety. One expert said: "Some parents only value academic achievement."
They also say that busy lifestyles are cutting short the quality time girls are able to spend with their families - yet girls place great value on this time.
