No parent wants to raise a mean girl.

The author of Queen Bees and Wannabes, the book on which the film Mean Girls was based, wants to help Denver-area moms and their daughters navigate more easily through the tween and teen years.

Rosalind Wiseman brings her Girl World Tour to Denver on Friday evening, April 16, from 6:30 -8:30 at Girl’s Inc. Mothers* of daughters aged 8-14 are invited for an evening of bonding, laughing, and an “interactive discussion about confidence, friendships, sweat-inducing moments and common mother-daughter challenges.”

The event is $41.50 for a mother-daughter pair, and includes a copy of Queen Bees and Wannabes: Helping Your Daughter Survive Cliques, Gossip, Boyfriends, and the New Realities of Girl Worlds for the adult and Rosalind’s debut young adult novel Boys, Girls and Other Hazardous Materials for the daughter. In addition, attendees will receive a gift bag with swag from sponsors Dove Go Fresh deodorant and Family Circle magazine.

Info and tickets at Girls Inc.

I’ll be there with Tessa. Might I see you?

    My kiddos are still too young but I LOVE what she is doing to address the Mean Girl problem.

    My daughter will be 13 in, um, 3 months and 2 days. But who is counting?

    The most challenging issue with her has been helping her manage her time wisely and planning ahead.

    Luckily, she’s blessed with a really awesome best friend and there hasn’t been one moment of drama between the two. Knock on wood.

    She seemed to encounter more “mean girl” issues around 3rd to 5th grades. It starts earlier than that, unfortunately. Like kindergarten.

    Amber, I’m just heading into the tween years, and I’m as interested in helping her avoid mean girls as I am helping her not BE a mean girl. I be the Tour covers both.

    Gretchen, choosing friends is so important, isn’t it? And you’re right. I’ve already seen signs of the mean girl syndrome in the grades you mention.

    I think it was that way even when I was in grade school. You know, when whoever had the cutest bone in her hair was the top girl.
