I have two daughters, one adult and one who is “almost a teenager”. I am so grateful for Peter and Heather Larson’s and David and Claudia Arp’s new book, “She’s Almost a Teenager” and only wish it had been around 15 years ago. Before the pre-teen years, it is easy to connect with your daughter, but once they get closer to being a teenager,they begin to keep things to themselves thinking parents/adults don’t value their opinions. It is important to talk to your daughter about key issues such as dating and boys, social media, spirituality, financial responsibility, physical and emotional changes, etc.
The Larsons and Arps show you how to initiate these conversations without intimidation by incorporating them into everyday conversations. They also show the importance of both parents having conversations with their daughter. As parents, it is our responsibility to help our daughters navigate the teen years and become responsible adults.
This is a must-have for every parent of girls who want to have meaningful conversations about life. There are very helpful suggestions along with some bonus suggestions that will help you be more informed parents and opening up the lines of communication with your daughter.
