Teenage Girl

by Maddy Richards, who helps produce "The Matt Townsend Show," on BYU Radio

Being a teenage girl is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do.  If I could go back and tell myself a few things they would be to:

Laugh more


Don’t try to be perfect


Being smart isn’t stupid

The boys aren’t worth it

Quality friends over quantity

Be nicer to my mom

The media isn’t always right

Forget about yesterday

It’s not the end of the world

Be yourself!

If you’re a mom, dad, brother, sister, grandparent, aunt, uncle, friend, to a teenage girl recognize that it’s hard for them. Help them feel loved and appreciated. Give them space when they need it. If they’re wrong tell them in the nicest way possible. Criticize only when necessary. see the best in them because they don’t. Let them know you love them anyway. Let them TALK to you and make sure they aren’t afraid to talk to you. Help them laugh and love them fiercely.
