Re: Mom's of young teen girls.. need some advice..

mama. I still have a ways to go before my dd hits puberty, but I can remember being very shy about my own experience and not wanting to talk with my mom about it. How is your 17 yr old's relationship with the 12 yr old? Could she talk with her? Show her the ropes?

About the bra issue, I don't know if you can force that one, you know? From your description, she doesn't seem to uncomfortable not wearing one in public and probably thinks she is reaching a compromise by wearing the jackets. It would be hard for me, but I think I'd wait and let her peers clue her into wearing a bra.

Hope communication opens up for you with you lo in the coming months.
