How can I help my daughter’s transition into womanhood?
At the age of 15 the world is opening a whole new frontier. She is transforming right before your very eyes. Get a picture of her when she was 10 and look at the difference in appearance. She is morphing from a little girl to a woman so quickly that even she can't handle the changes. She feels confused and yet confident that she can take on all kinds of challenges, but she wants to do it her way.
Evaluate what she was like when she was three or four.
Did she have the tendency to be strong-willed?
Did she have the tendency to wait you out?
Many times what happens with the "terrible 2-4“ replays even more dramatically at 14-16.
Girls are experiencing hormonal imbalances and struggling with depression, and the new attention that boys are giving, sometimes the pressure to date as well as the social experience/pressures of high school that it's not uncommon to lose their way and focus.
It is a combat zone, regardless. For those who want help my book has a P.M.S. charting system as well as other special charts used very effectively for 15 and up. It isn't a cure all, but it helps focus on specific issues and teaches management skills for the world outside of home.
Did you know 3 of 5 women suffer from P.M.S. Or P.M.D.D? It can be hereditary.
That means you are not alone and there are solutions.
