I almost bailed on this one. It started out with a very narrow definition of "normal" teen behavior, but it got better as it went along. Her approach to parenting teens is similar to my parenting philosophy, which is reassuring. The chapter on sex is especially good (I have not been feeling prepared to address texting, the internet, and social media vis-a-vis teen sexuality). I've put a hold on the book-book to share with my spouse.

Scochrane26 I had a team meeting at work today where all of us (therapists) were discussing tic toks & how so many are inappropriate. And only a few of us knew you can chat through them. We are always learning something new that teens are doing. 1w

A sweet book of affirmations for the girl in your life assuming she is either white or maybe eastern Asian. Given the book's intention, it wasn't the best choice to illustrate it with only one girl as the “main“ character when it could have just as easily featured a different girl for each affirmation thereby giving the broadest range of girls the opportunity to see herself in the main character. A big opportunity for inclusivity was missed there.

“Tattling is about trying to get someone in trouble. Telling, on the other hand, is about getting someone help. Reporting a situation where someone is unsafe means you're following the rules of your school and community. It is also your ethical obligation as a human being“ (300).

So excited to round out a year of book talk on my podcast with a conversation about the first title in The Clique series! We chat about the mean girls cultural moment of the early aughts, why we love to read about money, all the weirdness of middle school, the sexualization of tweens, the politics of school uniforms, creepy dads, the moral responsibility (or not!) of middle grade authors, and more. Link to listen in my bio!

Every Christian girl needs to read this book. 10 life lessons that I wish I was taught when I was younger. This is the one book that will most definitely get you through the many struggles you will face during middle school as well as high school. Maybe even when you are older. For those parent's of teen girls out there, I highly recommend giving this to them as a gift in hopes they will learn from it.
