This post is inspired by a lovey 8th grader who has made a permanent place for herself in my heart. She loves color, flowers, and everything girly. Some times it can be difficult to buy things for younger siblings, especially if you no longer live with them. However, working along side middle school students every day has given me an insiders advantage that I would love to share with you. So this Christmas, give your younger sister a gift she can enjoy all year long and let her know that you have no forgotten about her. In addition to buying her presents, think about taking her to the movies or shopping at the mall. This will give you an opportunity to reconnect and learn more about each other.
