What Does Popularity Really Mean to Tween Girls?
Always focused on the girls'-eye view, New Moon Girls asked our members (ages 8-14 worldwide) to let us in on this very prevalent issue in their lives: NMG Popularity Survey.
Girls told us:
If they feel they can be themselves when with friends
What they've done or said to be more popular
What other girls do to be more popular
If they have stayed friends with someone because that friend was popular
What makes them feel popular or content with themselves
Responses to "what makes them feel popular or content with themselves" may be the most heartening to read. Anyone who cares about girls or works with them needs to get this inside look at the lives of girls.
The safe social network at newmoongirls.com gives girls inspiring information and stories to support them in being happy being themselves while they navigate the twists and turn of finding their place in tween and teen society.
To further the conversation in families, Nancy Gruver, founder of New Moon Girls, is leading a webinar on Popularity Ups and Downs for girls and their parents on March 1, 2011.
