Mean girls bullying is a concern for many tween girl parents. But there are traits that strong girls need. One mom asks can we learn these from mean girls?
Most parents of tweens agree that girl bullying is a top concern. Bullying statistics are grim and our own memories of what bullying feels like don't help. On VProud, mother, writer, and vlogger Carey Carey flips this conversation in a surprising twist asking if there are mean girl traits that are actually desirable. Carey explains why she's teaching her daughter--not how to be a mean girl--but how to have the traits of one. Carey's reasoning is compelling. Take a look and see what you think about mean girl traits--do we want our girls to have them or ... not so much?
