With all that being said, tween girls are actually completely amazing and I’m not sure we harp on this enough, but it’s true. In the face of so much shifting and sorting out of their feelings, they never cease to amaze us. They move at warp speed, are endlessly spirited and engaging, and even though a lot of times they act like they hate us, seeing their personality change, shift, and grow is pure magic to watch.
My tween girl is so challenging. She makes me question whether or not I’m doing a halfway decent job raising her about 1,000 times a day. But I wouldn’t change a thing about her. She blows my mind on the regular and I’m guessing most parents of tween girls feel the exact same way. It’s just such a vulnerable, yet hopeful, time.
