Looking for a way to reconnect with your teen daughter?

The past three years have been hard on us all...

However, it’s been even more challenging for our teen girls. The February 2023 study from the CDC reported an alarming crisis among our teen girls, who are experiencing unprecedented levels of depressions and anxiety and struggling socially and emotionally.

The CDC found in their study that...

24% of teen girls had considered taking their own life

And that 6 out of 10 girls were so persistently sad or hopeless that they stopped their regular activities

This is the effect of several conflating factors, including...

Toxic social media culture

Academic Pressure

Impossible beauty standards

Bullying in-person and online

Sexual violence

And the isolation and life-upheaval
that came with the pandemic.

If we do not seek to help our daughters...
this mental health crisis could get even worse.

This event for you and your daughter if...

Tickets are $75 per Mother-Daughter pair

$30 per additional attendee

You will leave this brunch with...

You don't have that much time with your daughter
before she goes to college...

In between both of your busy schedules at work and school, take this moment to spend quality time with your daughter and reconnect with her at a level like never before.
