Tweens, Teens & Beyond #2

Tweens, Teens & Beyond #2

Welcome to the second linky of Tweens, Teens & Beyond hosted by myself and my fellow Tween & Teen Bloggers, Sharon from After The Playground and Nicky from Not Just The Three Of Us.

We were so delighted by the support we received from the blogging community in the lead up to and during our launch last week and were particularly pleased by the number of link-ups, including some from bloggers we had not discovered before, so all round it was a great start to our Tweens, Teens & Beyond community.

The best bit of linky’s of course is reading the posts and we loved each and every one of your posts and the fact that there were so many different stories to be told on the challenges and the funny bits of parenting Tweens & Teens, as well as top tips for good books to read, fossil hunting and choosing GCSE’s.  It was also great to have some fabulous “Beyond” posts too – I for one was especially interested in the Slendertone review from Laurie and will be popping that on my wishlist.

There can, however, only be one winner and this week we have chosen the post from Kathryn Mayer – American Girl Doll vs. Victoria Secret Angel: the battle for daughter dollars.  Do pop back and have a look if you missed it in the link up.  Kathryn’s post talks about mixed marketing messages and their appropriateness.  Kathryn very cleverly relates this to our young girls growing up and the confusion they face.  On the one hand they cannot wait to be wearing bras and make-up and on the other they are still playing with their dolls.  It made us smile.  You can check out Kathryn’s blog here

      Hi Katrina, so glad you have joined us. Old posts are just as good as new ones so that is fantastic. It’s so lovely to find some new bloggers with older children.
