six ways to keep the little in your girl

Parenting is hard. Parenting a girl tween is bordering impossible. I think I have been afraid of parenting a teen since I was a teen myself. I remember seeing friends or others that went down a wrong path and wondering what was it that made that happen. They seemed to have normal caring parents and…
