T.E.A.R — Teens Expe­ri­enc­ing Abu­sive Relationships

That’s from the most recent free e‑newsletter from Daugh­ters, a mar­velous publication/organization. Read the whole issue here (warn­ing: PDF).

You can get a free copy of their print pub­li­ca­tion, too!

Yes, I like them enough to give them free adver­tis­ing. From their blurb:
Final­ly, a newsletter
writ­ten just for
par­ents of girls…

“She’s only 10 and already wor­ried about her weight.”

“How can I help her weath­er the storms of friendships?”

“She used to like math, but now says she’s not good at it”

“How do I talk to her about sex?”

“I’m wor­ried about her– should I read her journal?”

If this sounds famil­iar, you’re not alone. Rais­ing a girl today isn’t easy.

Daugh­ters®, the newslet­ter for par­ents of girls, offers what you need.

Save time with short arti­cles, jam-packed with the lat­est research and prac­ti­cal tools to improve com­mu­ni­ca­tion with your daughter:
• under­stand her see-saw emotions
• gain her trust
• help her dur­ing the unpredictable
ado­les­cent years
• enjoy spe­cial times as she blossoms
into a strong, con­fi­dent young

Daugh­ters tack­les the tough issues:
• body image
• sex­u­al­i­ty & dating
• friends & peer pressure
• communication
• school
• privacy
• alco­hol and drugs and more

Every page is devot­ed to help­ing you feel bet­ter about par­ent­ing and help­ing your daugh­ter become a self-assured young woman.

Think Moth­er­ing, in terms of pas­sion for the girls in your life, with­out hav­ing as much of a par­tic­u­lar polit­i­cal bent.

Oh. Wow. I just came across their book list for the first time. Hon­eys, do keep me out of book­stores, except the used ones, okay? Is there a way to block Ama­zon and the like at the router?

To the uni­verse: why can’t we find the same kind of pub­li­ca­tion for parents/people con­cerned about boys?
