My Daughter is Growing Up. How Can I Help Her?

My daughter.  Just yesterday I seemed to notice her again, growing taller, holding herself with the air of a budding “tween”.  Even her facial features have changed.  Why is it kids seem to take another step towards maturity over night? Right now my daughter is in such an awesome place.  She has a great second grade teacher.  She does advanced mathwork.  Her friends are really good kids who have a positive influence on her.  Right now, this tight little group plays with dolls and is reading Harry Potter.  This is the kind of peer pressure parental dreams are made of….

After school she had gymnastics and it was…

She Said, She Said

Recently a mother texted me that her first grader came home from school upset that my young daughter was making fun of her on the school bus.  And would I please talk with my little one?  The mom wasn’t accusatory but simply wanted the situation settled, her daughter was hurt.  Reflexively, I assumed my daughter was in the wrong, because my own mother did just that when it came to similar circumstances involving me, or because I knew the family well enough to know the mom wouldn’t exaggerate about something like this.  I didn’t go directly to my daughter to scold her; I…
