Wagga was recently fortunate to host journalist and author Madonna King for a talk about her new book 'Being 14'. Madonna is a compelling speaker and it was a really insightful evening. She brought up a lot of issues facing (predominately) 14 year old girls. 1 in 3 are sending naked selfies. Is your daughter, sister, niece or neighbour one of them? What are the legal ramifications? We will talk about this issue and others that came up after the evening with Madonna.

Using my time off wisely ☕️ Becoming a mum has been the most motivating and rewarding thing that has ever happened to me, watching her grow and learn makes me so proud everyday but with Han coming up 13 my stress levels are definitely increasing and with Social Media this generation of teens are going to make a stamp on the world ! I will raise my girl to be strong, independent and powerful but that alone will make the next few years even more challenging for me!
I would highly recommend this book to any mums that have girls heading for this age, your reaction shapes any outcome, being aware of what is really going on is so important and learning when to help or back off is key ! I'm honestly excited for the next stage but quietly shitting my pants ❤️ #luckrequired#daughter#teengirls#madonnaking#being14#love#mum#challenge#challengeaccepted#bestjobever#brisbane#brisbanemums
