for 12-14 year old girls & their mums
Rising Women is a Mother Daughter Weekend retreat designed to support you and your daughter as she steps into her teen years. Our aim is to offer time away for you both to connect and reflect on the many changes already happening (or on the horizon), along with supporting you both to better understand the challenges she faces.
It can be a particularly challenging time for girls when the need to fit in far outweighs everything else and their friendships take priority as they seek more independence.
Building a strong bond and facilitating good communication with your daughter
is now more important than ever and will set you both up to better navigate this journey, and to celebrate and acknowledge this stage of her life as she transitions to young adulthood.
Girls will get to gently explore issues like friendship and it's dramas, the lure of social media, healthy body image, and simplifying boundaries & understanding consent. Most importantly they will be seen and honoured for who they are right now.
Mums will get time to explore the consequences of the 'perfect mother myth' and the changing dynamics of your relationship with your daughter, how to set and keep boundaries that are right for you, healthy communication, the dance of freedom and responsibility, and resources to support you on this journey.
If you have a daughter aged 12-14 yrs and want to:
Strengthen your relationship with your daughter
Improve your communication skills together
Learn about setting healthy boundaries
Support your daughter confidence to make
safe, appropriate choices
Understand the cultural mother/daughter double bind
Connect with other mums and feel supported on this journey
Our Rising Women Mother Daughter camp might be a perfect adventure to support as you both step into this next phase together.
Our 2023 camps will be in March and August in the Byron Hinterland of Northern NSW.
