MercatorNet update ~ Week ending 1 December 2005
http://www.mercatornet.com -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi,
Several new articles have been posted to the MercatorNet website, as well as an excellent backgrounder on women's fashion. Written by our deputy editor, Carolyn Moynihan, this deals with a topic which is sometimes a hot potato in homes with teenagers. Carolyn passes on a lot of sound advice about the meaning of fashion and age-appropriate styles. A must-read resource for many families -- forward it to your friends!
