Someday he’ll be famous… Rodrick Rules

My kids are ready for the next Diary of a Whimpy Kid movie. Coming out next week.

What I find so amusing about this whole thing, is the books are truly simple diaries. Not all too pleased with everything they say…but I cannot shelter her forever and the occasional bad talk is less than what she hears on TV anyway.

My daughter has read these books. I buy them for her one by one, as she finishes one she gets the next.  She enjoys them, I see them as a social learning tool for her. A young kid, being made fun of and putting up with the aggrevations of middle school, has set himself apart and become a huge success. Sometimes the opportunities are truly right in front of us. My daughter has social issues at school.  She’s seeing this year for the first time, a variety of cultural and social classes at school. She’s a husky little 3rd grader,  and she feels the brunt of that everyday. My heart sometimes bleeds for her. She and I have both had a lesson in toughening up this year. If this book and movie show her that she’s not alone in those school kid terror attempts, then mission accomplished!

I’m actually looking forward to our movie day.

About tweenspot

I am like so many moms raising young girls, scared I'm doing the right thing and learning with pure amazement at the same time! I feel like I have become my mother (don't we all) favorite phrase is "today things are so different than when I/we grew up". The absolute hysteria in that phrase scares me too. I don't want to be scared. I like to think that as a professional, working, college educated women that I can embrace the world we live in. That's why I have been researching Tweens, what they like, do, what's hot and what's trends are going to cost me a fortune in the future! My little girls are the love of my life. By creating this blog, I want a safe internet place for girls and moms to share. This blog is in the infancy stage, but I have big plans for it. So stay tuned.... Read, enjoy, comment. Visit as often as you'd like. I hope together we can build a community for girls and moms to explore, learn and share with one another.
