Parenting With Playdate Planet

Parenting With Playdate Planet – Parenting Girls

Girls face their own unique challenges. If you’re a mom, you’ve been there yourself. If you’re the parent of a girl, you’ve either faced some of these issues already or you will down the road. How do you deal with mean girls? What if your daughter turns out to be the class bully? How do you keep the lines of communication open? What do you do when your daughter gets disrespectful? The questions can seem never-ending.

In this episode’s show, I talk with teen and parenting mentor, Debra Beck to get the answers. Debra is the author of the multi award winning book for girls titled: My Feet Aren’t Ugly: A Girl’s Guide to Loving Herself from the Inside Out and the parenting coach to Clint Eastwood’s wife and daughter. She’ll tell you how you can help guide your daughters through the challenging pre-teen and teen years while building their self-esteem. More information about Debra and her coaching services can be found at her website, Empowered Teens and Parents.

My second guest is Sarah McIlroy, Founder and CEO of FashionPlaytes, an online site that provides girls with the opportunity to design their own clothes. It’s also a wonderful bonding activity for moms to share with their daughters. Girls can design their own outfits to purchase as gifts or for themselves or they can just share their collections with others. Learn all about the site in this week’s show.
