Buying Clothes for your Tween Daughter

If you thought that keeping up with the contents of your quickly growing 6-year-old’s closet was a challenge, just wait until she hits the double digits. Wardrobing your daughter during those tumultuous tween/teen years is no easy task — ask any mom who’s been there (or, simply think back to your own adolescence — yikes).

There are plenty of age-appropriate fun finds for tween and teen girls out there . . . you just have to do a little sleuthing.
