Hear your daughter’s 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 daughter’s really trying to tell you through her anger, silence, and mixed messages:
“I need you, but I won’t admit it.”
“I’m not as confident as I appear.”
“I have friends. I need a mother.”
Instead of focusing on outward behaviors, Dear Mom captures your daughter’s heart and soul. You can know your daughter’s 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.

too late for you, Mom. If you’re still in the bookstore, trying to decide whether or not you’ll like this book, wondering if it will be worth your time (oh, did I mention your money?), it’s not too late to just set it down and walk away. Just walk away, and no one will get hurt, because, seriously, what is there about parenting me (your
sweet, innocent teenage daughter) that you don’t already get? You’re a cool mom—you can handle this, right?
Even if someone gave you this book, that doesn’t mean you need to read it. Who cares if Grandma or Aunt Sue thought it was just the ticket to help you work out things with your beastly teenage daughter.We know Grandma and Aunt Sue aren’t that smart about this stuff.
Oh, maybe they’ve heard you complain about me, or maybe they even heard me mouth off to you (that one time) or saw me freeze you out (I was irritated, okay?), so they decided you need this how-to book to straighten me out. Well, you know as well as I do that they just need to get a life.They obviously don’t realize that you really do know what you’re doing, Mom. They just can’t appreciate that you already have things under control (everything but me, that is, and we both know that’s not gonna happen). So why waste your time with this book?
