The Middle School years of our daughters bring with them a lot of changes both physiological and emotional. They are entering into a season of not being a young child anymore, but they are also not quite adults. They are trying to figure out who they are.
As if elementary age squabbles weren’t bad enough, we now get the joy of entering the years of “mean girls”. Girls can be so brutal at this age. The teasing, gossipping and comparing just to name a few, can be such a drain on the emotional stability of these young girls.
It is our job as parents to walk alongside our children to help them navigate these relationships well. As with any age in parenting, we are equipping our children to be successful adults.
