I originally wrote this workbook for my daughter Jacqueline when she turned 13. I thought I was pretty good at communicating what was important to me, but it seemed like every time I tried to talk to her about these topics, we’d get off the subject, she didn’t want to hear it, or we’d end up arguing about some little aspect of the conversation. When I put it in written words, she was able to read it on her own time, when she was ready and wanted to know what I thought. I realized other moms may benefit from this approach as well. I don’t attempt to know the right answers, or even all the right questions, but hopefully this workbook will help other moms and daughters discuss ‘the tough stuff’. I’d love to know what your thoughts are, if it worked for you, or what advice you’d have for other moms doing their best to share what’s important with their daughters. Please share your thoughts with us!
