Staying connected and affectionate with tweens can be challenging.
I'm watching my daughter navigate unfamiliar waters: experiencing new thoughts, emotions, and sensitive interactions with her friends, and above all, discovering herself and her independence. Some days, I feel like I'm along for the ride (and it's a bumpy one!)
Learning to express love to each other in a way that works for us has been so helpful. We write each other notes, have code words, and ask each other for hugs when we need them. We are expressing love in ways we can feel it as individuals...our love languages...with a twist that works for this in between stage.
Please join us for a Mother Daughter Retreat where we'll learn about the love languages, discover your daughter's preferred language, and practice during fun activities while we share a light breakfast.
Saturday, August 17, 9am-12pm
