The Truth (I'm a girl, I'm smart and I know everything) by Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein - TOUR

The Truth is written in journal style by the girl - a precocious eleven year old.  It reads quickly, but we go through her journey on why parents think they know everything when in fact she does.  Swearing is bad, it makes the room heavy, and sure, we know it's bad, but we do it anyways.

She writes about why parents won't talk to their kids.  She really wants to know when she can wear a bra, but everytime she asks her mom, she finds something else to do.  She talks about kids being mean, about being the big sister to her little brother, and about having babies when she grows up.  Right now she has baby dolls and oh yeah she wants horses and maybe a dog. 

She also talks about her tummy turning upside down with her first crush.  All in all, this is a great book for a girl in puberty.  It answers alot of questions they may be asking and lets them know they aren't alone.  A refreshing read on a girl trying to find her way and growing up.

Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein, nationally know Positive Psychologist, is the creator of The Enchanted Self,® a systematic way of helping to bring more joy, meaning, and purpose into our lives.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
