    For any mother-daughter!

    I have taken all 3 of my girls through this workbook over a 2 year period (each) and really feel it covered all bases for those pre-teens. It allowed questions to come up that they wouldn't have thought of and I particularly didn't want to answer! They have pages where they can write their own feelings and not feel any pressure to say the right thing. This has been by far the best puberty book we've read. Highly recommended!

    I feel SO ASHAMED!

    On 'A Girl's Guide to Puberty,' you know, the leopard-spotted one, I started an advice column. Right away, I got a question from a girl named Heather about periods and discharge, and one from a girl named Leticia about boy problems. I answered Heather's and now she's committing suicide. Read the whole thing at Dear Heather and Leticia (that was my review name) and the one right above it. Tell me if it's the way I answered! Should I pray for the family or not? Oh, I've just never had a girl say she was going to kill herself because of my answer to a simple question about periods! Please reply to KoolKat

    TO KOOLKAT

    You should try to talk the girl out of commiting suicide. Dont feel to bad though it was not your fault all you did was give advice. Its really her problem if she wants to kill herself. Hope this helped. Best wishes, -TEREZA
