I was reading an article at Color Online and was introduced to the LitWorld Girls Clubs for Literacy. I didn’t know that this group even existed. I am so glad that I read other blogs and sites to get this very important information. Sometimes there is so much out there it’s impossible to digest all…Continue

The increasingly harmful sexualized images of young girls can be seen throughout media advertising. Sexualized merchandise is offered to an increasingly younger crop of potential consumers and the consequences of this cannot be ignored. The sexualization of young girls is a social issue that…Continue

I have two little girls and I am dreading (I should say, embracing) the moment when they reach that time in their lives when they leave the innocence of childhood to enter the ever changing (I’m talking hormones) woes of womanhood.
Ah, puberty. I remember the not-so-pleasant experience of getting my first period at school. I think that I remember wearing white…Continue

The other morning, I awoke to a cold, rainy day. I got the kids off to school and made the long commute to my office via the staircase. I sat at my desk, my coffee in my hands and my feet propped up, listening to the rain. It was a few minutes before 7:00a and it was still dark outside. I knew any motivation I might have to get dressed and go to the gym was slowly fading away. I needed to do something to cheer me up a little, and to keep me from commuting back to my bedroom and crawling…Continue

Ever wanted to try that luscious emerald green eyeliner but didn’t feel like risking $18 in case it didn’t work out? Might you or someone you know be a sucker for sample makeup? If so, you’ll want to hear about…

I could certainly relate to Sara Buntrock as she talked about her tween daughter when I met her this last January at a gift show. Being a mother of a tween myself (any child between the age of 7 to 12 is considered one), I know that they start having very mature tastes at a very early age (thank you Hanna Montana/Miley Cyrus and iCarly/Miranda Cosgrove).
Make-up is definitely one area that young girls love to explore. Although I do not encourage my young daughters to wear makeup, I…Continue

My daughter was incredibly excited about graduating from elementary school. A budding artist, she even drew a portrait of herself and her friends with the words "We're middle schoolers now!" above it in bold print. But the beginning of the year was a disaster.
The bus route confused her. The school pace was intimidating. And then, in gym, she hesitated before passing a sheet of paper to her partner. "Give it to me, you retard," the girl said. My daughter looked back to see…Continue
