Mother-Daughter Communication Workshop

Women & Wisdom

In these workshops mothers and daughters learn how to make the teen years ones that build closeness and lay the foundation for a lifetime of connection.

  • What do we want our daughters to know about being women?
  • How do we help them set goals and identify ways to reach them?
  • How do we allow increasing independence while keeping them safe?
  • How do we build the foundation for safe dating and healthy romantic relationships?

These workshops provide the opportunity for mothers and daughters to enhance their common language and their connection at a time when so many stop talking and become isolated from one another. Mothers and daughters find answers together as they spend the afternoon talking, laughing and sharing.

Pre-Teen & Teen Workshop for Parents & Educators

Making It Easy to Talk About Dating & Sex

As a parent, how do I get the conversation started? How do I make sure I’m giving the right messages?  As an educator, how do I discuss dating and sexuality in ways that don’t overstep my role?  This workshop helps parents and educators focus in on the most important messages and learn how to communicate those messages effectively, in the home and the classroom.

Young Children Workshop for Parents & Educators

How to Talk to Children About Sex: Answering the Tough Questions with Confidence

Young children are alive with curiosity about their world.  Questions about where they came from, how boys and girls bodies differ, where babies grow and how they are born arise naturally as they work to  understand their world and make sense of their experience.  In this workshop, parents and educators will have fun learning and practicing simple steps to answering children’s questions with a welcoming response and age appropriate information.

Individual & Family Consultation

I consult with parents and /or other significant adults in the child’s life, providing individualized education and support. Consultation can be in-person, over the phone or by email, or video chat. Sessions can involve parents only or parent and child together. Through this service, parents learn how to respond most effectively to children’s questions or behavior. It can also be a useful tool for planning ahead, supporting parents in feeling confident and well-prepared for common situations that may present themselves as children grow and develop.
