    One of the fastest ways for your son (or your daughter) to get off-track is through a bad relationship with the opposite sex. Yet what wise parents know is how bluntly stating your opinion can push a teenager away and deeper into the arms of a bad influence.

Such a treasure!

I have just stumbled upon the Girl Mom podcast a I’m so grateful to have found such a great resource to help me raise my three girls ages 16, 13, and 11. I’ve found myself reaching for a pen and paper so many times so I can write things down so I don’t forget. Thank you for efforts!
