Fighting With Your Tween Over Going Out? Try This G.O. Checklist (As Featured on PIX11 News)
There was always drama with my tween when she wanted to go to a party or event. I had questions like who was going to be there, how many parents were supervising and if any boys would be there. Instead of going over these questins everytime, I created the G.O. (go out) checklist–it lists all the requirments and info needed to get a “Yes” and let’s my daughter know what details are required to go out. And she signs it. So many moms found it helpful and it was featured on Pix11 News. Click here to watch it and keep reading to use the G.O. checklist.
