Being a teenage girl in the 21st century is challenging. An important parenting practice is good and effective communication. During adolescence, communication is vital as it changes from the type that parents used when your daughter was younger. Previous ways of communicating must be adjusted to accommodate the growing needs and abilities of your teen daughter. As your mother daughter relationship changes and matures, so must your communication.
While teens are gaining more independence, they still need love, guidance and to have fun with their parents. Teens who can talk with their parents have healthier relationships with them, make wiser choices, perform better in school and tend to avoid risky behaviors. Dr. Trevicia Williams, facilitates a fun way for moms and daughters to talk.

“The mother daughter bond entails bequeathing intangibles such as emotional health, self esteem, and, subsequently, life satisfaction. The relationship is a foundation that enables daughters to express those emotions in other relationships through out life. Sensitivity, intelligence, creativity, a warm heart, a sense of accomplishment upon successfully achieving a goal, and, wisdom are all cultivated and nourished during a girl’s primal years” says Dr. Trevicia Williams
