U.M.C.: Unapologetic Mom Coolness (Your Secret Strategy)


The fateful moment has come:

Your preteen or teen daughter is beginning to show signs of embarrassment … with you.

Or maybe your daughter seems perfectly content with your wacky humanness?

Maybe you’re having to deal with the cultural obsession that ‘mom = lame’ (insert eye roll here) that seems to show up in every TV show ever?

Either way: it’s time to reclaim your COOL, to re-embody your authentic expression, to groove on with your real self.


I promise you this:

Your teen daughter doesn’t want you to cave or crumple in the face of her (or anyone else’s embarrassment).

A mother who owns her authentic expression is a force to be reckoned with.

Today we’re talking about reclaiming your cool — the mothering ‘secret strategy’ you may not have heard about. 😉
