Dr. Maria Clark Fleshood
"Tweens to Teens: The Parent's Guide to Preparing Girls for Adolescence is a must-read book for all parents who want to understand and support their daughters' journey to finding their identity, strengths and potential.
Inspiring and illuminating, Dr. Fleshood's book teaches parents how to use rituals to gain self-efficacy and self-confidence as they move into adolescence. This book is an invaluable gift for the whole family and or the culture at large."

Dr. Fleshood offers a clinical process that help prepare girls and parents as they transition from the tween to teen years. This clinical approach teaches parents how to communicate with their daughters in ways that provide stability, love, and affirmation, despite the inevitable tensions the will stir during this developmental transition. Rather than just “getting through” these years Dr. Fleshood teaches parents how they can help their daughter thrive, secure her autonomy, build a positive self-image, and stay connected to her true nature as she steps into adolescence.
