How can mothers create better relationships with their daughters?

The co-founder of the Radiant Woman Mother Daughter Retreat program believes story sharing is vital.

Jaclyn Cunningham says she became passionate about creating the retreat after seeing ‘high rates of anxiety in teenage girls – this sense they needed to prove themselves.

‘I also found that a lot of teenage girls really do want to have better relationships with their mums’.

The high school teacher says, ‘When daughters listen to a whole group of mums, it can really help them understand something that might be going on in their relationship with their own mum.’

Sustaining the mother – daughter connection

Jaclyn and Mandy took the time to have an in-depth conversation discussing the value of the mother daughter rite of passage in Mandy Nolan’s Echo Chamber podcast last week.

‘As a mother of four daughters I wish I had had the chance to take my girls to something like this,’ says Mandy.

Jaclyn adds that often the mums who attend find insights along the way about their relationship with their own mother.
