She's Twelve Going on Twenty by Kim Camp

I love reading a great parenting book and this book was no exception! While this book is aimed at mothers of teens and preteens (ages 9+) I gathered so much valuable wisdom from it's pages! My oldest is now only 7, but after reading this book, I feel like it gave me a great insight as to what to expect in the years to come. Not only that, but many ways to prepare my daughter now for the obstacles she will face in her teen years.

Kim addresses many of the issues that teenage girls face and struggle with, and also lists many ways to help us as parents guide them to make the right decisions. Body image, peer pressure, spiritual growth and boys are just a few topics addressed in this book.

At the end of each chapter is a challenge to get involved with your daughter in the form of an activity together, or having a heart-to-heart conversation.

I would highly recommend this book to parents of girls of all ages. I think Kim's advice is greatly beneficial and I feel like I've gained a wealth of knowledge just by reading this book! I rate it as 5 stars!
