She's Twelve Going on Twenty: Nurturing Your Daughter Through the Tween Years By Kim Camp {Book Review}

Publisher's Description:
Especially for moms of teens and preteens, a practical, Christ-centered guide to helping your daughter grow in mind, body, and spirit.
As the mother of a young girl aged 9 to 16, you want a lot for your daughter. You want to see her soar in self-confidence and accomplishment, to navigate a safe course through the treacherous waters of school, culture, and hormones, and to grow closer to God while learning to rely on his Word. And through it all to maintain a warm, open mother-daughter relationship.
Easy-to-read and deeply personal, this invaluable book draws on a wealth of experience, careful research, and a deep grounding in the Bible and Christian faith. "Working It Out Together"at the end of each chapter provides communication starters and activities to help you and your daughter talk things out and plot a positive course together for the challenging but exciting adolescent years.
My Thoughts:
This is a good book for moms of tweens/teens. I enjoyed her insight and suggestions for discussions with your daughter. It was great to hear the wisdom Kim gleaned from her mentorships with girls. She gives good insight that will be helpful living with my girl. That being said, I felt there was something lacking. Maybe it was written too closely to Kim's divorce while she is still (rightly so) very focused on working things out as a single mom? Maybe it was not enough spiritual backing to reinforce her points? I'm not sure. I can't really put my finger on it, but it seemed surface-y. Good to read and expound upon yourself, but not great.

I give this 3 out of 5 stars.
