Encourage Quiet Time and Meditation
If your daughter is getting ready for a big date or dance, encourage her to unplug before the event. Ask her to turn off her cell phone, computer and music and just relax and breathe. By letting her mind quiet down, Dawn says your daughter will have better control over her decision-making and emotions. "So when [she] walks out to that date with that boy, she can at least feel that she is herself," Dawn says.
