For my newsletter this month I thought I would attach a link to a great article about helping to handle conflicts with girls. This is a good read and has some good strategies on how to help your daughter cope with problems with other girls. This is also a good read to help anyone, not just specifically girl problems. I hope you that you learn a few things you may have not thought of before.
