Publisher Comments:

Hear your daughters heart…

without the angst, arguments, or arm-wrestling

Raising a teen daughter can be like trying to chart a course underwater. You can drown in an ocean of one-word answers, defensive conversations, and unpredictable outbursts, and never get anywhere. Popular teen girls novelist Melody Carlson helps you cut through murky, deep, uncharted and seemingly unsafe waters so you can hear what your daughters really trying to tell you through her anger, silence, and mixed messages:

“I need you, but I wont admit it.”

“Im not as confident as I appear.”

“I have friends. I need a mother.”

Instead of focusing on outward behaviors, Dear Mom captures your daughters heart and soul. You can know your daughters hopes and fears, doubts and dreams about her identity, guys, friendships, and even you. And you can connect on a deeper, more intimate level that will carry both you and your daughter through the stormy seas of life.
