The recent rise in the use of social digital media has brought a new wrinkle to the way tween and teens girls deal with friendship conflicts and it’s not pretty. In this podcast I talk with Rosalind Wiseman, author of NY Times best-seller, Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and the New Realities of Girl World (Three Rivers Press, 2009). Rosalind brings her considerable knowledge of Girl World to this spirited discussion of the way things are for girls in the Age of Technology and how parents can help them survive and thrive.
