Value yourself more than any other.


A young woman in our area was found dead today. Missing a week or so, they charged her boyfriend with murder. I feel compelled to tell young girls, you can’t be sure. Always be safe rather than sorry. NO ONE is worth your life.

Turns out the guy has felony convictions, a gang member. Why?? would a young, bright eyed girl be drawn to this?!?! I’m not blaming her for her fate. I’m sure in a million years she never dreamed this would happen. She’s innocent enough to have never thought it would happen to her, maybe she knew him better than anyone else, or he trusted only her. Maybe she was helping him build a future…or thought so.

Girls, you cannot be safe enough. Our world is cruel. When in doubt—DON’T! and if you find yourself in a position of abuse, or intimidation…get help. Talk to your parents, (they know and understand more than you think they will). If that is not an option for you, here is a few resources:

Stay safe! be aware of what and who is around you, and most importantly value yourself like no other!

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)..my 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.
