As your child matures, it’s natural that she will become more independent. Many moms and daughters are best friends until the typical teen issues that come along with adolescence drive a wedge between them. If you’re experiencing this for the first time, it can be a bit shocking. Not only is your baby not a baby anymore, but she also seems to suddenly think you’re far less cool than you used to be.
Mother Daughter Retreats: Encouraging Communication
You likely have a lot more than teen issues stressing you out. Along with your teen pulling away, you also have your career, personal life, health and household to manage. Unless things are going perfectly, the distance between you and your daughter likely feels like icing on top of a bitter cake. Life can be difficult, and sometimes, you and your daughter both need a break. That’s why a mother daughter retreat is such a great idea.
When you choose to devote an allotted amount of time to working on your relationship as mother and daughter, you’ll experience a deeper level of communication. This is a great time to work on any issues that are standing in the way of a close relationship. That said, don’t feel bad if you can’t work everything out during one retreat. The difficult part of being a parent is setting boundaries. It sometimes means that you can’t be your daughter’s best friend in every situation. Use your time at the retreat to help your daughter understand that everything you do is out of love.
The Chance to Bond: Quality Time Together
A retreat doesn’t have to be all about discussing tough issues. It can also be a way to enjoy some girl time together. Share stories from when you were a teen. Discuss your first experiences with romance or your struggles in school, and your daughter might feel inspired to share some stories of her own.
