Book Review - She's Twelve going on Twenty:Nurturing your Daughter Through the Tween Years by Kim Camp
She's Twelve going on Twenty: Nurturing your Daughter Through the Tween Years is written by Kim Camp and is published by Thomas Nelson.
I have a daughter who is just turning twelve next month. To say that she is "going on twenty" is an understatement. She wants to dress and act like she's much older. I had four boys before this one and only daughter was born. Believe me when I tell you that raising boys is not a bit like raising girls. Where does a mom go to get advice? Kim Camp of course!
When I first got She's Twelve going on Twenty: Nurturing your Daughter Through the Tween Years, I expected some good, solid Christian advice from one mom to another. I am not disappointed. Kim Camp is an engaging author who definitely writes what she knows. And she knows kids.
At the end of each chapter are going further type exercises for moms to do with their daughters. I plan on doing quite a bit of them. An example? At the end of chapter seven is this, "Practice giving guidance with questions rather than unsolicited answers." I could use some work in that department.
I have been reading this book during my devotional time, after reading my Bible and journaling my prayers. I have thoroughly enjoyed this bit of wisdom. Parenting daughters is hard stuff. We don't have to go it alone. Thank goodness.
