It seems as though today's girl is growing up faster than ever. She barely has time to be a kid before she begins to feel adult pressures. Unlimited media exposure and schedules crammed with activities have brought complicated stress to what should be carefree days. Home life situations such as divorce and financial difficulties loudly insist that girls become wise to the ways of the world. Most girls must worry constantly about measuring up to parental expectations and peer standards, plus fitting into the right social circles (both virtual and real-life). When a changing body and hormonal structure enter the picture, many girls are not ready. They need the wisdom, experience, and perspective of their moms. They need to know they have an admirer, an audience, and an ally right by their side.
