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, and this is us now!

We are 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 15 years. We no longer teach workshops together, but our body of work is preserved in The Mothering Course.

We loved teaching together so much…

that we created an online course for mothers like you. Here we are 10 years ago!

We created The Mothering Course so that you could have your own personal “workshop” with us: to learn to trust your intuition, to know what to do in complex situations, and to find your calm and confidence around connecting with your daughter.
