Tween Secrets. The Secret Lives of Tweens.
Their secrets are anonymous, but real. We asked the AllyKatzz girls: “Got secrets you want to share but afraid to even tell your best friend for fear of what she’ll think? Want to read secrets from other girls so you can see that you aren’t the only one with secrets?” To quote one 12-year-old girl, “I am an ocean of secrets.” Below are a few of their anonymous SECRETS.
Read them with your daughter, and add a few of your own secrets. Even if they think you’re a strange adult, girls do want to know about your life when you were their age. It’s a great way to start talking about important, but not so easy to talk about subjects.
Warning #1: Bad idea to try to get your daughter to tell you her secrets – let her make that move. I’ll share more tween secrets in future columns. Could one of these girls be your daughter?
Warning #2: These quotes are littered with spelling and grammatical mistakes. Rather than write “[sic]” everywhere, here’s our PSA.
