Tween Girls Do What?



tanyaadsmall.pngIn my house, knowing what tween girls from across the nation are doing makes life so much easier for my daughter because all things equal, she’s normal… although it doesn’t always seem that way when you’re the mom. So I thought I’d share a few tween factoids with you… for your own use or better yet, to share with your daughter. Does she believe in horoscopes? Does she want to change her looks? Would she rather be a pig rancher (does she even know what a pig rancher does?) or a rock star? Have fun!

      I had no idea! My daughter is not quite a tween yet but I worry about those years. This is some interesting insight into what I can expect in the future. Thanks for sharing, can’t wait to hear more.

      This is GREAT – my daughter is just going into her tween years and I’m so happy to read that a tween expert is blogging on alphamom.
