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!
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.
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.

I have the same question! I've heard good things about Discovery Girls but have not tried it. I just ordered a subscription to Oprah hoping that if it is around the house my teen might (might) read it and find some inspiration.
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!
