I have a daughter now, and one of my greatest fears is getting her through those tumultuous, insecure, awkward middle and high school years with her sense of confidence intact. If I could protect her from every mean girl, every unkind word, I would! However, I do recognize not only the impossibility of that, but also the lack of wisdom in doing so. Chances are that at some point your daughter will come home from school feeling excluded, targeted, or ostracized, maybe even scared. If you are lucky, she will turn to you for guidance on what to do, and share with you how she feels.

Most of all, parents need to make sure home is a place where children feel loved, wanted and understood. Lastly, stay involved in your daughter’s friendships from toddler through teenage years so that you can evaluate, encourage, advise and sympathize about the relationships that will help shape that special girl in your life.
