After I told you about Discovery Girls on my blog here, I was contacted by Jen at Discovery Girls, and she told me about a launch of their new website for parents of tween daughters. Now let me pass it on to YOU! Last Wednesday was the launch day for www.DiscoverYourDaughter.com . I have been on it, explored around it and I really think it is going to be a great tool for us. Let me show you part of the e-mail from Jen.
A little history?It?s hard for parents to help their daughters if they don?t know what their daughter?s problems are. Recognizing that, the publishers of Discovery Girls magazine created this online community for parents of tween daughters -- DiscoverYourDaughter.com -- to educate parents and share with them what we know about what girls go through during the difficult tween years.
We?ll share:How to help her learn to identify & stand up to bulliesWhat she thinks parents don?t understand about her life?and what to do about it.How parents can teach her to use technology wisely, so she?s not ruled by text messaging, IMs, email, etcHow to know where to draw the line on privacy? How much should tweens have?How to help her deal with jealousy, disappointment, and failure so she grows into a resilient, strong, confident young womanHow to help her to love and accept her bodyHow to build a foundation so she?ll make good relationship choices now and for the rest of her life
The site is very easy to navigate and there are articles for parents and girls. Everything is grouped by topic, and you have an option to subscribe to the parenting newsletter for regular updates and the latest study findings.
If some of you have thought about ordering Discovery Girls for your daughter, there is also a trial subscription and you receive a risk-free issue. If you LOVE it, pay just $19.95 and receive 5 more issues, if not just write cancel on the bill, return it promptly and owe nothing.
Now, go on over and start browsing this new web site and let's make it a great resource for all of us that occasionally need some help navigating our tween girl's world. Look for me.....I am mom-to-lexi. Appropriate, don't ya think!
Oh, and remember you can enter my giveaway here.♥
