Dear Mother of Daughters ranging from ages 11-14,
You are invited to take
THE DAUGHTER DARE.
First, let me tell you my story.
When I was mothering my first teenage daughter, I believed that it would be a difficult time and I parented as “the heavy.”
I didn’t invest. I was not proactive. I guess I thought she’d just morph into what I expected of her.
It wasn’t the prettiest time of our lives.
Fast forward to the spring of 2016; my two 13-year old daughters were in the kitchen and I said something which I thought was hilarious.
One daughter looked at the other and they communicated in their private little way; then they turned from me and they ROLLED THEIR EYES at their mama.
My entire world stood still.
I knew in my heart of hearts, if I was going to have any level of influence in their lives, then I would have to change some things.
I would have to parent them differently than I had parented my first teenage daughter.
I just didn’t know what that looked like.
I read a book on the subject but it was waaaay too pious for me and my personality type. I went to a mother/daughter program, which was nice but didn’t meet my daughters where they lived.
So after prayer and much thought, I decided to create my own summer program.
In the spring of 2016 I asked my husband, Russ, if he’d be willing to give me the green light on some $$ and some time. I was going to invest it into our daughters. He readily agreed.
I am grateful for that time with my daughters. It was time well spent.
We are doing it all over again, with some improvements. AND we have video-taped the whole thing, making it extremely easy to share with other mothers that would like a stronger relationship with their daughter.
So if you are a mother with a daughter in the age bracket of 11-14,
The Daughter Dare is a FREE eight-week video series where you will intentionally and specifically build into your preteen or young teen daughter.
This program was designed from a Christian perspective and it is geared for FUN and CONNECTION.
Every week, beginning June 1, 2017, you will receive a video lesson and mother/daughter activity delivered to your inbox. The videos are short. Some are just for the mothers. Others are for both mother/daughter. Each activity has been geared toward your daughter, helping her form a better picture of herself, to gain confidence in our world.
Of course, take what you love and leave the rest. This is about you and your daughter.
