This is my first time doing this and I hope you get my letter.
Bubby, I'm just 13 and I'm starting to focus on my appearance. I have a 7-year-old sister but she isn't really worried about her appearance. She's really all I have besides my mom and step-dad.
Anyways, I really could use some help on my appearance! It isn't really all about BOYS now! I'm just ready to grow up and start taking care of myself, and how I look and dress.
If you think that you can help me please let me know!
Dear Thirteen year old,
What a nice age. I'm sure your mother can help you with your wardrobe but I can give your a few suggestions.
* Always brush your hair each day so that your hair will shine and be clean.
* Have your hands and nails clean.
* Ask your mother if you can have a professional manicure with a clear or soft polish once in a while - it will make you feel grown up.
* Your clothes should be clean and fit well.
* Your shoes can have a small heal if your wish.
* On occasions you might wear a bit of light make-up.
* Always look and feel like you just got out of the shower.
You will develop good grooming habits that will serve you your lifetime. If you feel and look good, you will grow to be a fine, fine young woman. I am sure that your mother can give you help in growing up.
Don't worry about the boys--they have to grow up too. I think that girls mature earlier than boys so at this point in your life think more of yourself than the boys and you will grow up to be a beautiful young lady.
Best of everything.
