Growing up is a jungle. Having four daughters, I'm passionate about how young girls today navigate that jungle. We're all familiar with stories of mean girls, cliques, backstabbing, and social media nightmares started by one impulsive picture or post. In a recent article I wrote on teenage depression, the psychiatrist told me about teenagers she sees whose depression got triggered by a single online incident.
I have a daughter now, and one of my greatest fears is getting her through those tumultuous, insecure, awkward middle and high school years with her sense of confidence intact. I would love to protect her from every mean girl, every unkind word, and every sting of rejection possible. However, I recognize not only the impossibility of that, but also the lack of wisdom in doing so.
Are you you looking for a special way to connect with your daughter? Make time for this TWOgether study using Lynn Cowell's, His Revolutionary Love, and the weekly posts and videos at More to Be. You'll both be blessed!
