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.

Thank you for this video. I was just leaving school, I work at the high school my daughter just started to attend. I’m taking her to horseback riding and going by my colleagues saying hello and a big hello to one of my daughter old friends when she says mom don’t talk to them! For the first time I didn’t listen and I honored her as well by not being over the top. Then I watched your video, which reinforced what I’m doing!
Question, my daughter has asked me to not dance in front of her and her friends. I love to dance and sing. Sometimes I feel upset by this and sometimes I simply just do what feels right, and sing when I want to!
Thank you ladies, you rock!!👍😊✨💙
Hooray Sylvana! Love this share of yours- it is a gold mine. I am so impressed by your holding your fully expressed adult self, for your daughter, for her friends and for the WORLD. Seriously. Let’s hold our heads high and not bow to the peer pressure of adolescents. Our daughters and sons need us to remain the mature adult who keeps intergenerational communication alive and well. As for your question about your daughter asking you not to dance in front of her and her friends… we get that all the time and the answer is what you have landed on: “sometimes I simply just do what feels right, and sing when I want to!” You are a mother genius!!! Rock on!! xo
