If you are the parent of a daughter, you’ve likely been subjected to a comment like, “just wait until she’s a teenager!” Today’s podcast guest, Sil Reynolds, co-author (with her teen daughter) of Mothering & Daughtering, pushes back against that outdated way of thinking. Think of her as the “daughter whisperer,” because she teaches us mindful ways of connecting with our tweens and teens authentically. 


1. What behavior issues—in toddlers and teens—really mean

2. Preteens and adolescents need us just as much or more than ever

3. Our cultural narrative about teen girls is untrue and often dangerous

Sil Reynolds is a nurse practitioner, psychotherapist, mother, and a mothering coach. She is the co-author, with her daughter Eliza, of “Mothering and Daughtering: Keeping Your Bond Strong Through the Teen Years”, and the host of We Thrive TV, a monthly vlog.
