“Mothering a daughter is often among the most intensely satisfying and challenging experiences of a woman’s life,” write Renée Schultz. “We yearn for support for ourselves as mothers and for wisdom in nurturing our daughters into healthy women while sustaining close and loving relationships with them. Yet many of us fear that the wonderful ease and joy of our relationships with our daughters will unravel during adolescence. We know that mothers are held to impossibly high standards and yet we worry that we might not be measuring up. Honoring the hard work of mothering while simultaneously caring for our daughters and ourselves guides us towards mutual thriving. Come join other women in celebrating the joys and addressing the challenges of being the mother of a daughter and a daughter yourself. Discover ways that you can have ongoing support for both you and your daughter. And have fun celebrating the wonderful world of women, as both mothers and daughters ourselves. This workshop is for mothers of daughters only.
