ATLANTA - Feb. 16, 2021 - PRLog -- Raising a tweenage daughter is no easy task. That's why Dr. Lisa Sistrunk, human development professional and motivational speaker has released her debut book, "Her 12th Year: She's Not So Little Anymore" to guide parents as they tackle hard to discuss conversations like sex, drugs, self-love, menstrual cycles, friends, driving, and even spirituality with their daughters ages 11 to 14.

When Dr. Lisa's daughter – Kamaria – was 12 years old, she would have weekly conversations to prep her daughter for her journey into womanhood.  The book is written with those notes in mind from a parent's perspective. Teenage girls can also find value in the book as they read the "Kamaria's story" sections to know that they aren't alone as they grow, develop, and mature into young women.

According to Kamaria, "As a tween, I thought these conversations were HIGHLY awkward and uncomfortable, especially the one about sex... However, as I grew into my teen, and then young adult, years, I knew there was nothing I couldn't tell my mother."

The book is available on Amazon and at in both paperback and eBook versions, starting at $9.99 for the eBook and $19.99 for the paperback. The book was launched via YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook: @DHElevation on Feb. 10.

"These parent/daughter bonds are irreplaceable and are essential to the proper growth and development of our girls," Dr. Lisa said. "Reading this will strengthen the relationships we have with our daughters to make their lives more rewarding, even when us parents aren't around."

What readers are saying:
