Attention Teens!


Although YALDAH is for ages 9-15, we're now looking for observant Jewish TEEN girls (ages 13-19) to contribute to a book of advice for teens that will be published by YALDAH! 
What areas do you need advice in? What areas would you like to share advice with other girls? Ever wish you had a wise older sister who had 'been there, done that'?  
Please send us your questions, problems, thoughts, comments, advice and more on any of the following topics (or suggest a topic!):

-My parents drive me crazy: Relationships with parents
-Why can't I hang out with guys? Boys, tznius, shomer negia
-I'm stressed out from school: stress & other school-related issues
-I am a nothing: depression
-If I am, who am I? Finding yourself
-Who says I'm peer pressured? Issues with friends & peer pressure
-Should I start planning my future? How? Thinking about the future
-Do adults know how I feel? Feeling like no one understands you
-I'm ashamed to be different: Being Jewish around the rest of the world
-How do I resist the temptations of the modern world? TV, movies, music, magazines, books that we should stay away from
-They say I'm bummed out: reputations & what others think
-Am I fat? Healthy eating, exercise & eating disorders

What Now?

Hey, this is the 100th post! Pretty cool, huh?

So, as you can see, Girl Fun has been pretty quiet for a while. I was at camp for three weeks and had an unbelievable, unforgettable, inspiring, fun filled summer - hope to see you there next year! ;-)

I was home for a short while, and now I'm back at school - as a SENIOR! 

So now my question for you is...


What do YOU want to see? Should we continue posts everyday like we had before? Weekly posts? Games on the website? What do YOU want to see that will make the YALDAH website fun (besides a forum...sorry)? 

Post your answers/comments.
