Understanding Your Teenage Daughter 

Mothers, Are You Having Trouble Connecting With Your Daughters? 

Nobody said parenting would be easy. Most people don’t mention the specific struggles you might face as a mother. Mothers are sometimes surprised when, as their daughters reach their teen years, they suddenly have trouble connecting with each other. Your daughter rolls her eyes, slams doors, and isolates herself – and you don’t know how to reach her.

The answer to improving your mother-daughter relationship is closer than you think. 

If this is your first time to my Merry Meddling blog, Welcome, Awesome Moms! My name is Deborah Ann Davis, and I have over 30 years’ worth of experience working with parents, and helping them understand their children’s needs. I’ve earned my B.S. in education, my M.Ed. in Supervision, and my certification as a W.I.T.S as a Personal Trainer – and I’m eager to put both my knowledge and experience to use as your parent coach. 

Are You Worried About Your Mother-Daughter Relationship? 

If you’re worried about the state of your mother-daughter relationship and don’t know how to improve it – take a deep breath, and slowly exhale some of that tension and worry. You’re not alone in this concern. Most moms are experiencing the same things as you. They’re just not talking about it.

The good news is that you don’t have to figure out all your parenting solutions alone. After more than 30 years of working with parents, I can say that parenting is harder today than it ever has been – so don’t be afraid to seek the support you need.

How To Have A Conversation With Your Daughter 

How Can I Have A Conversation With My Daughter? 

Many mothers find themselves struggling to maintain their mother-daughter relationships as their daughters enter their teen years. After all, how can you maintain a good relationship with your daughter if she won’t even talk to you? How can any kind of relationship work without communication? You may feel isolated from your daughter and unsure how to reach out to her – but you don’t have to figure it out on your own. 

Mothers Can Learn How To Talk To Their Daughters Through Parent Coaching 

I’d like to welcome you to my blog and wish you a Happy Meddling!

Your Daughter Wants To Be Able To Talk To You As Well

Happiness Workshop to Help with Positive Thinking 

How Do You Shut Down That Inner Critic?  

Many of us have a voice that is critical of who we are and how we behave. The negativity can come in many forms; you’re ugly, you’re stupid, you’re too fat, you’re not good enough, etc., etc. Even if you think you have all the boxes checked to have a fruitful meaningful life—your inner critic will tell you different. Our Happiness workshop; Get Your Happy On & Keep It On! Will help smack down that inner critic that has prevented you from having a meaning life. 

What Makes You Happy? 

Happiness is like art—we know it when we see it. Or in the case of emotions—we know it when we feel it. Happiness is a slippery word to define, but most agree, when we are living content and purposeful lives, we are happy. But, where does purpose and contentedness come from? It comes from two places: inside your head (Inner Environment) and outside your body (Outside Environment). You can’t just be happy if you only try to perceive things differently. Saying an empty glass is half full does miraculously add water to the glass (inner environment). And an empty glass is not going to quench a thirst (Outer Environment). So, you see, you need both inner and outer environments to reach contentedness and purpose. In other words, to be happy.  

Creating an Inner Environment for a Positive Outlook 

Congratulations, you have already started. You found this blog post because you were already thinking about being happier. That is the first step and you have already taken it! In our happiness workshop, Get Your Happy On & Keep It On! I share 10 more things you can do to reframe your inner environment to increase happiness. The best part? They are all easy and you don’t have to do all 10! Pick and choose the ones that resonate with you.  

Revamping Your Outer Environment 

You have less influence of your outer environment than your inner environment—but that doesn’t mean you have ZERO influence. Even if it is not food, everything outside you is consumed. You don’t just consume with your mouth, but your eyes and ears too. In our happiness workshop, Get Your Happy On & Keep It On!  You learn how become more mindful of what you are “consuming”. We don’t just mean figuratively. Literally what you consume in your diet also impacts your happiness. You learn all about it in our workshop. 

How Do I Sign Up for This Happiness Workshop?  

We only have this workshop a few times a year, so seating is limited. We do have an exclusive early bird special for readers of this blog. Learn all the details by clicking the following link. Happiness Workshop, Get Your Happy On & Keep It On!   

Can I Improve My Mother-Daughter Relationship? 

How Can I Improve My Mother-Daughter Relationship? 

Countless mothers ask themselves this same question all across the country.

Unhappy Mothers And Unhappy Daughters 

As a mother, it can be all too easy to feel as though you’re the only one struggling with parenting. The truth is, however, many mothers are overwhelmed with parenting-related anxieties. Many mothers doubt their parenting abilities and worry they won’t be able to improve their mother-daughter relationships. 

On the other side, teenage daughters feel pressure to look, feel, and be certain ways. The media tells them they need to be perfect. They’re left feeling isolated and unhappy. They need their mothers more than ever so they don’t have to rely on their peers to feel accepted.

Happy Earth Day! 10 Easy Ways to Conserve Water

Happy Earth Day!

Save Water for the Planet

Want a Great Conversation Starter for engaging your Littles, Middles, and Teens? Be a Planet Hero! Share these ideas with your kids, and turn them into Planet Heroes, too!

According to Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission, if you shorten your shower by ONE MINUTE, you can save 10 gallons of water for every shower.
Well! You know what that means, right? If you shower daily, that’s 70 gallons a week. If you get 1 other person to shorten his/her shower by one minute, that would be 140 gallons of water YOU would be responsible for saving.

All that heroism from a 1-minute-shorter shower? Unbelievable! (But true.)

Conserve with Your Kids!

What if your kids get their best friends to shorten their showers by one minute? With 52 weeks in a year, that’s 7,280 gallons of water that can be saved every year by 2 people if they shorten their shower by a measly 1 minute. WOW!

Boost Your Relationship with Earth Day 2022

If you didn’t get to capitalize on last month’s Earth Hour, you still have time to take advantage of April’s Earth Day 2022 and Earth Week 2022. I’m telling you, they make for great Conversation Starters.

Do you remember the days when the air was so polluted, it settled like a dark shroud around the cities? Or, when the lakes and rivers were so polluted that if you fell in a swallowed some water, you went to the hospital? I do. If you don’t, you have regular people to thank.

April 22nd is Earth Day, and your kids should understand what that means, and how ordinary people, like you and me, made a huge difference.

During uncertain times, it’s important to orient our children to inherent power they have as a people. Encourage conversations about how to make a difference in the world. It moves the focus away from things they cannot control. What better way to help your children feel more settled inside (something everybody needs in this day and age)?

Take a moment to share this 1-minute video. It shows what the United States was like before the Earth Day Protests convinced politicians to pass laws to protect our environment… and the people.

Then share this 2-minute video with your kids. It describes the protests that marked the very first Earth Day, and it can lead into an excellent open-ended discussion.

Do your kids regularly reject your advances? Try sticking your head in their room and saying something like this:

“I found these 2 interesting videos online I want to share with the family. It will literally take less than 5 minutes. Do you want to come sit with us and watch it, or do you want me to just show it to you separately?” (Never ask a question that requires a Yes/No Response.)

If you get a non-committal answer (like “Whatever”), show the videos right then. When you are done, ask a quick question, like, “How do you think [sibling] will react?” or, “How do you think [best friend] will react?”

Get your answer, and then bounce right out of there, leaving your kid in the wake of a pleasant interaction.

Just like a few voices grew to a global Earth Day movement, similar positive growth will germinate from these small constructive interactions with your tween/teen.

Happy Earth Day! Use it wisely.

Hugs!

Deborah

10 Trust-Building Activities for Moms

The more positive interactions you have with your children, the more comfortable they will feel around you. That opens a very important door between you in times of stress. They need to feel that coming to you when they have a problem is a Good Idea. That’s the trust every positive relationship includes.

By now, you should be rocking the Venn Diagram with your kiddos, but in case you’re new here, Venn Diagrams provide a vehicle for you to introduce topics to your kids (directions are below). They also provide a peek into the way their minds work. Believe me… you need that peek!

It all boils down to this: The more positive interactions/memories you build together, the stronger the foundation of trust will be in your parent-child bond.

10 Great Parenting Topics

Create a viable Venn Diagram with one of these concepts, unless you have a better idea:

  1. Fun female activities you can do together (manicure, tai chi, etc.)
  2. All-time best movies (then watch the Section C movies together)
  3. Best cartoon/animation movies
  4. Impressive heroines—fiction and nonfiction
  5. Best-looking male celebrities
  6. Where would you like to go/do on your next vacation?
  7. Possible makeover ideas (including the less obvious: rooms, people, relationships)
  8. Best sports or teams
  9. All-time best TV series
  10. Favorite outfits for a high school dance/cocktail party with associates

Directions for Your New Parenting Strategy

1. Introduce the venerable Venn Diagram at some random moment when nothing hangs in the balance.


2. Inform your daughter that you are attempting to improve the relationship between you, and as part of that process, when she has time, you’d to share an idea with her.


3. Be prepared. Bring pen and paper, and a copy of the Venn Diagram with you.


4. To create a collaborative atmosphere, sit next to her, not across from her.


5. Decide on a topic together (favorite movies, songs, moments, ways to have fun, etc.) to practice.


6. Each of you writes your own Top 10 List separately.


7. Fill in the Venn Diagram.
–> One circle is for your favorites.
–> One circle is for her favorites.
–> Everything that appears on both of your lists goes into the intersection of the 2 circles.
–> Cherry pick anything you like from each other’s circle, and add it to that sassy Section C!

The intersection of your favorites where the magic happens. That common ground is what you agree on. Go to How To Keep Your Daughter From Slamming the Door to find out more.
