Have a tween girl (9–14) going through all the pains of teen angst? The braces, the acne, the Robert Pattinson crushes?
We know what its like (especially the Robert Pattinson crushes!). And while there's no direct gospel we can preach, we can point you to an upcoming happening your daughter will benefit from as she endures her growing pains: the Make A Mark Tween Empowerment Event, which organizers said is "designed to designed to educate and empower tween girls on healthy body image and self-esteem."
The event will host workshops on skin care, the active lifestyle, arts and crafts, mother-daughter relationships and other vexing issues, taking a fun perspective to answer the tough questions girls ponder during those self-conscious years.
“I’m excited for the support of our Los Angeles area sponsors who are helping to bring tweens and their mothers together in a fun and educational atmosphere,” said Kelley Lee Gin, Make A Mark organizer. “Our sponsors will be able to interact with the girls, sharing the latest trends with them.”
