From Tweens to Teens

The Parents’ Guide to Preparing Girls for Adolescence

Maria Clark Fleshood


All parents want their daughters to become confident, happy, self-sufficient women, but the turbulent years of early adolescence can be difficult to navigate. From Tweens to Teens invites parents to rethink how they prepare their daughters to face these difficult developmental years. In this ground-breaking guide, psychotherapist and educator Maria Clark Fleshood encourages parents to revive global traditions to mark preadolescence (ages 8 to 13) with rituals and celebrations that guide young women through these years of self-discovery. Maria Clark Fleshood provides a tested, six-step approach to engage, guide, and prepare preteens for the challenges and changes of a new developmental stage. From Tweens to Teens offers parent’s tools that help them build tweens’ self-esteem from the inside out.

Dr. Maria Fleshood is a licensed professional psychotherapist, Advanced Imago Relationship Therapist, and a Fellow with the American Association of Pastoral Counselors. With a private practice in Virginia, she specializes in relationship therapy, helping parents and their adolescent daughters maintain meaningful and strong connections. Dr. Fleshood has been a parenting specialist, working nationally and internationally with adolescent girls, for more than thirty years. Her academic, clinical, and educational work stems from her belief that a new cultural response is needed for girls to achieve a successful transition into adolescence. She and her husband have four adult children and four granddaughters.

"I tell parents to do 'reflective listening'. If you talk too much, your child stops listening and it gets lost on them."
