Mothers Just Don't Understand Teenage Girls!
Boys, alcohol, sex, parties, popularity, promises, and secrets—all topics that teenage girls believe Mothers know nothing about. But if the truth be told, most mothers have been there, done that, and thrown away the t-shirt.
"My goal was for this book to jumpstart conversations between mothers, daughters, and even grandmothers, about life—so as to break the silent cycle," says Myers. "Hopefully, after reading this book, mothers and daughters both will find it much easier to discuss some of the tough issues that young women are facing today."
Slumber Party is a fictional story that journeys into the lives of four teenage girls as they enter into and graduate from high school. The girls encounter much drama along the way. Friends since elementary school, reared in the church, they learn the hard way that life outside of the rules, hidden in secrecy, is more drama than they can handle alone. Interestingly, the relationship with their mothers or lack thereof, influences their reactions to those issues.
“It really boils down to trust. Mothers don’t trust how the daughters will use the information, fearing they will be mocked. In turn, daughters don’t trust how their mothers will respond, fearing being reprimanded,”
While the book touches a wide variety of the social issues that have been plaguing teen girls yesterday, today and tomorrow, the book will not provide solutions without guidance and discussion. If read together, Slumber Party can be used as an ice breaker for mothers and daughters to realistically examine the issues and to delve into deep and open discussions on how to tackle them as they arise.
The book is available at most major online bookstores or directly from the publisher.
