I guarantee that at the onset of my 'tween years (back then, we called it puberty) my mother would have much appreciated the link that was waiting for me in my in box this morning.

Nancy Gruver, girl champion and founder of New Moon Media, is now running the site Daughters.com. Daughters.com is a hub of information, articles, advice and relevant blogs all focused on the unique challenges and celebrations that come to those of us charged with raising today's girls.

Upbeat but realistic (read: not Pollyanna-ish), Daughters.com aims to help caregivers of girls encourage them to soar in their own skin and to find their own voices, all while dealing with the sense of weirdness and disorientation that can come from so many physical and social changes occurring in such a short span of time.

Daughters.com is a must for any Mama of a little lady. A companion and a guide, this site is more thorough than any Judy Blume novel we ever had to hide from our mothers. Come to think of it, I kind of wish my mother had had this site as a resource, too.

Hi Meaghan - Thanks for the shout -out - and Kate's right that it's for dads, too - see Joe Kelly's blog there.
