You might be educating a pre-teen and a great way to get girls learning can be through hands on experiences. You can take time with your pre-teen and actually read books from American Girl Series about diverse topics to prepare them for the future.
You can read a series of books about Personal Care and then complement these Anthony Robbins - Get the Edge Series can also supplement them about things to do for their long term in life. A Self Help program for your teens can be a great home school project to do this Summer. You can gather other great books at the Wilkes Public Library in North Wilkesboro.
