A Mother's Guide to Communicating with Her Teen Daughter

Many daughters are hesitant to share their deepest thoughts and questions with their moms for fear of being misunderstood or laughed at. Many moms don't know how to communicate with their teen daughters. Taken from real-life questions submitted by teen girls and by moms, this book guides moms through their daughters' tough teen years and covers broad topics such as communication, trust, and overprotectiveness as well as more focused issues, including modesty, boys, and curfews. This repackaged edition includes a new chapter on social media.
