Annie Fox for Parents...

Parent Forum

I’m a parenting expert and family coach. Our 21st century tweens and teens are so savvy about pop culture, technology and social media, they may believe they’ve got the emotional and interpersonal part of life figured out too. They don’t. Middle and high school kids need their parents to teach them how to be good people who do the right thing, online and off. Because home is where kids learn the most about love, respect, empathy and resilience, you need 21st century parenting advice you can count on.

Welcome. You’re in the right place.

“How do I begin the puberty talk with my 10 year old daughter?”

Dear Annie,

One of my co-workers is divorced. Her ex-husband is now dating a friend who attends their church. My co-worker's son is now wanting to date the friend's daughter. My co-worker would like some advice on how to handle this situation. Could you please send me information that I can pass on to...


Hey Terra,

I want to have the puberty discussion with my just turned 10 year old daughter. But I don't want to freak her out with too much information. On the other hand I don't want her to wake up and get her period one day without knowing what's going on. Help!
