I have 2 girls, one of whom is heading towards her pre-teen years and I worry a lot about the impact of negative female media images on them both. We’ve worked hard with them in terms of self-esteem, particularly on Miss R who is 7, and I’m starting to think it might be working. However, the pre-teen magazing Girls Talk ... Read More »

Dressing an Older Girl’s Room
