How to get closer to your daughter when it feels like she's pushing you away get your free video now

We’ve got cool news for you about your daughter.

Your preteen or teen daughter actually
wants and needs you to be more connected, not less.

(We promise, we asked her, ­­well, a lot of girls her age.)

But she also wants you to connect in a different way.

Even if she doesn’t know how to say it.

Welcome to a new approach to mother­-daughter relationships,

where thriving, not just surviving,

is the new normal.

Hi, We're Sil & Eliza,

the co-founders of Mothering & Daughtering,

and a mother-daughter dynamic duo, co-authors, and workshop leaders for mothers and their preteen and teen daughters for almost 15 years.
