Why is it there are magazines for teen girls and the only content is fashion, who's famous, dating who etc... I see no holistic mags for teenage girls anywhere. I also have been searching for mags for moms who are raising teenage girls... anything out there???? Anywhere!

Raising teenage daughters magazines? And Magz for girls where every image isn't anorexic!post #2 of 93/29/13 at 9:59pmpost #3 of 93/30/13 at 5:13pmI would imagine there aren't many because the demand for that type of thing isn't there and probably never has been at rates that make a magaxine like that a sensible product to create.
National Geographic is always good whether you are a boy or girl. I always looked forward to getting that and Seventeen.
I was looking this up because my DD likes magazines and Teen Ink looked good because it is written by teens. Discovery Girls is targeted at tweens and young teens and might be good, it looked too immature for my dd's tastes. Susie magazine is a religious one for girls.post #4 of 93/31/13 at 6:29ampost #5 of 94/2/13 at 7:38am
Magazines are sort of dying anyway. You really don't see teens in our area reading or talking about magazines like they did when I was a teen. When DD was younger, we had a subscription to National Geographic that the kids liked and was good for current event requirements at school. Otherwise, It's more about blogs or tumblrs now with the teens we known. My own DD follows a few specific to her interests (largely BBC shows like Dr. Who and Sherlock.) Obviously, age and safety will determine when you let your kid do that but for my 16-year-old, that's all she really needs. My 12-year-old DS enjoys Scientific America and Popular Mechanics but we only grab them on occasions... usually before plane trips or something like that.post #6 of 94/9/13 at 12:08pmpost #7 of 94/12/13 at 8:01pm
My teens read adult magazines in their interests - Discover, National Geographic, Smithsonian, sewing, cooking and gardening mags, Scientific American, Psychology Today, The Economist, Utne Reader, I don't know what all else. We all love a family trip to a particular newsstand and a magazine shopping spree! Oh! And Mental Floss!
post #8 of 94/20/13 at 10:41pmpost #9 of 94/23/13 at 12:54pmMy DD had subscriptions to both New Moon and Discovery Girls through 11, although she was over them by 10.5. At 12, she would rather read Martha Stuart Living than either of those Magazines really are a dying thing, especially with kids and teens. Now, my DD just reads The Onion and Huffington Post online (which I think are a little mature for 12, but she is in middle school so it's unavoidable) but at least she's getting some kind of information about things besides celebrities and who they're cheating with (bleh). Honestly I would rather her read adult publications than what is offered to girls these days. Books are really the way to go.
