About the Book
Especially for moms of teens and preteens, a practical, Christ-centered guide to helping your daughter grow in mind, body, and spirit.

As the mother of a young girl aged 9 to 16, you want a lot for your daughter. You want to see her soar in self-confidence and accomplishment, to navigate a safe course through the treacherous waters of school, culture, and hormones, and to grow closer to God while learning to rely on his Word. And through it all to maintain a warm, open mother-daughter relationship.

She's Twelve Going on Twenty offers a comprehensive, Christian approach to issues almost every mother and daughter will encounter:

  • Identity and faith
  • Music, movies, TV, and the Internet
  • Boys and falling in love, sex and purity
  • School and grades
  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Clothes, fads, appearance, and body language
  • Boundaries and personal safety

Easy-to-read and deeply personal, this invaluable book draws on a wealth of experience, careful research, and a deep grounding in the Bible and Christian faith. "Working It Out Together"at the end of each chapter provides communication starters and activities to help you and your daughter talk things out and plot a positive course together for the challenging but exciting adolescent years.

My Take on the Book
While this book is geared toward moms and daughters, I will say that there was a ton in this book that still opened my eyes as well and gave me a lot to think about. The book itself is a valuable resource for any parent of tween girls as it covers almost any topic you can think of that can come up in the tween/teenage years. The book is personal and practical and allows you to learn and grow with each page you read. I particularly enjoyed the interactive components within the book that made you and your daughter talk and become closer in many aspects. All-in-all this was a good book that will definitely help you to better understand and relate to what your daughter is dealing with and how, as a parent, you can support them through these challenging years.
