I am looking for help with my daughter, she is 11 and I am a fish out of water here, I have raised two older boys, 24, and 21 now. And youngest son is 13 and in 8th grade. I have not been through teen years with a girl yet. I know how hard it was for me when I was young as I was not the prettiest or smartest but was friendly and loved spending time with friends and family. My daughter is very outgoing and loves her family, animals and what friends she does have. I need help through the ruff times what to say or how to say things to help her understand why girls and boys are so mean and why sometimes when they say they are your friend just to get something they are not a true friend. Any ideas or tips welcome.
