21 thoughts on “Raising Teen Girls: Promote Maturity and Good Character”

  1. As the mom of two tween girls, the struggle is already so real. I just do my best to continuously communicate with them and have honest conversations about the truly important things in life.

  2. It’s very important to focus on all the positive teens do and to encourage them and teach them values, morals and respect. Having character and maturity is essential.

  3. I love the fact that you mentioned acknowledging three positive attributes. What an important thing not only to teen girls, but all people in general.

  4. This is great! Thank you. I now have 3 girls! My oldest will be turning 10 in October and although my oldest is 13, he’s a boy so raising girls feels still pretty foreign to me…. this is great!

  5. I am raising teen girls right now, and it can be a challenge keeping them on the right and mature path, especially when the hormones kick it. But, it’s also exciting too. These are great tips to help navigate the sticky parts of parenting teen girls!

  6. First of all being the mom of a 15 year old daughter this post resonated with me on so many levels! All your tips were spot on especially this one which I am trying to practice with my teen on a daily basis! “Notice аnd асknоwlеdgе thеѕе роѕitivе trаitѕ whеnеvеr роѕѕiblе.” Thanks for these great reinforcements especially as we head into sophomore year of high school!

  7. I have a teen girl in the house. She’s a senior this year. We had some bumps but she’s doing wonderfully now!! Knock on wood. 🙂

  8. Raising teenagers is a tough phase every parent has to go through. I am fortunate that we have survived this phase of parenthood. The first thing we did was to work around on building trust and mutual respect.

  9. It’s important to respect their individuality and to also give them enough space to grow and discover things on their own. Giving them responsibilities that they can handle will definitely teach them discipline. It’s tough, because not all teenagers are alike, but as parents, just do what you think is right for your child.
