How much do you really know about your daughter's day-to-day life, what secrets she has about her friends, or what questions she's too embarrassed or scared to ask you? Fact: Her world is dramatically different from the one you grew up in. She has some tough questions. "What if I'm out in public when I get my first period?" "How can I get my mom and dad to trust me?" and "My friend put some embarrassing pictures of me online; how do I get them down?" are real concerns for young girls.

Use this biblically sound advice to help keep communication open between you and your daughter, and feel confident that there isn't anything she isn't telling you.
