Ok, so why are there moms out there who encourage their tween daughters to be popular? Or use that word so much like they are tweens themselves? Does anyone out there think it's because THEY wanted to be popular when they were younger? I can see how we live through our children's lives vicariously to SOME degree, but when is it taking it too far? My DD has a lot of friends, boys like her and she shares this with me. I LISTEN. Or try to give the best advice possible from a MATURE perspective. But we focus on grades, being respectful, not feeling like anyone owes us anything, and how to make a difference in this world. I have seen way too many moms out there that act this way and it's just awful. Thoughts?
