Mothers and daughters. Such an important relationship, but one often filled with challenges. As our young girls approach the tween and teen years, often this relationship gets strained. “Mommy” becomes “Mother!” said with an angry voice, and “you just don’t understand” becomes a tired refrain. So how can mothers hold onto the tenderness they are used to having from their little girls?

JF&CS is proud to host Cynthia Klein from JFCS San Francisco who is a parenting educator, coach and author, to help answer that question. Klein’s book, Ally Parenting: A Non-Adversarial Approach to Transform Conflict Into Cooperation gave parents the tools to listen and know how to connect emotionally with their children.

Join us for a FREE webinar on Friday, January 21 at 12 pm for our next Mental Health Series Event, Mothers & Daughters: Keeping The Closeness

Learn why the treasured relationship between mothers and daughters is also the most challenging. Explore how to keep the doors of communication open, so your daughter allows you to support and influence her as she makes important life choices.
