What Do I Do Now, Mom? is an easily-read book written to help every young girl understand that there’s much she can accomplish right now. For many young girls, the years between 11 and 16 are frustrating times. They are too old for many of their former pleasures; yet the excitement of dating, dances and romance are still off in the future because they are “too young.” Often they wait around, wasting these “in-between” years, and fighting against rules set up by their parents and other adults. Sometimes they ignore the rules and push ahead, maturing too soon. This book tells what can be done and explains how to do it, focusing on six major areas: Improving her appearance, Developing her personality, Enjoying her family, Becoming a better friend, Learning the delights of boys as friends and Increasing her testimony of God. With its interesting examples and positive suggestions, the book can change the problem of “waiting to grow up” into a fun and productive process. Mothers and other adults can use this book also to help young women develop into their full potential. What Do I Do Now, Mom? Is the love-filled counsel of a talented leader of youth, an experienced teacher, a well-known author, and a capable mother of eight children. She knows the heart-breaks and happiness that characterize the life of many young girls, and gives down-to-earth guidance that can truly help them change, improve and grow.
