Do you have a teenage or pre-teen girl in your life? This episode with Tara Filteau from Mother Daughter Empower is a must-listen for everyone who feels passionately about the future for girls.
By the time she turns 14, a girl’s self-esteem will be 30% lower than her boy classmates’. That is an awful place for a girl to kick off one of the most hormonal, confusing, and difficult times in her life. And this is why Tara Filteau founded Mother Daughter Empower with her daughter. This Canadian charity helps arm mothers and daughters with the tools to deal with difficult emotions, build confidence, establish friendships, and communicate.
We talk about social media exposure, bullying, friendships, hormones, and more. And most importantly, Tara challenges parents and bonus parents to look at how we are showing up for the girls in our lives. They might not listen, but they do absorb. So we have to be aware of how we are speaking to them and to ourselves. Listen to this important episode in your podcast app of choice or watch it above.
