CREATING STRONG CONNECTIONS BETWEEN MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS.
BEING A LIGHTHOUSE TO OUR CHILDREN IS REALLY ABOUT ESTABLISHING A STRONG, OPEN RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM.
If you're like me, you want to have the type of bond whereby your daughter will come to you if they're worried or anxious or struggling with an issue. We want them to turn to us when things go pear-shaped rather than leading (as some teens seem to do) a double life or even worse, suffering in silence.
We especially want them to feel comfortable talking to us if:
- They're being bullied
- They're struggling with friendship issues
- They're worrying about something (school work, family dramas etc)
- They have a secret crush!
- And perhaps most crucially - if they've experienced something that left them feeling uncomfortable or unsafe or alone.
BUT HOW EXACTLY DO WE DO THAT?
Here’s one thing I know for certain: leaving it to chance is not the answer. Having a close connection with your child isn’t about luck. Instead it’s about key strategies and decisions you make when BEFORE the teen years hit in full force.
I’M GIVING YOU A ROADMAP TO THE TWEEN YEARS ...
I'm a big believer in laying a strong foundation of communication, support and openness when our kids are tweens - after all this is when we're still the major influence in our daughter's life. And that's what my Lighthouse Plan is all about. It’s a roadmap to the tween years.
Here's what you'll receive from me EVERY WEEK for the next 12 weeks:
A bond building strategy (this is a tool or strategy to help build and/or strengthen the bond between you and your daughter. My intention is for your daughter to see you as their lighthouse -- that person to turn to for guidance and wisdom particularly when the seas are rough)
A gold-star tween/teen parenting tip(these are the best parenting tips for tweens I've read over the years).
A How-To-Handle page: periods, friendships dramas, body image issues — I’ll curate the best resources I’ve found and put it all in the one place for you to go back to.
Access to a closed Facebook group where more than 750 mums of girls are sharing tips, asking advice and brainstorming solutions for their parenting dilemmas in a private, judgement-free space.
