Having strong relationships with our children is something all mothers aspire to, but in the case of girl moms, it may be even more important than we realize. That’s because when raising daughters, we have an opportunity to empower the future generation of women.

As Boss Moms, many of us are motivated by the thought of using our businesses to uplift other women, but sometimes shifting our focus to creating a strong foundation for our own daughters can make an even bigger impact. 

That being said, girl moms often struggle to draw the line between creating ‘mini-me’s’ and allowing our daughters to become the best versions of themselves

How do we find the balance between guiding them to great things and giving them the space to decide who they are? How do we become parents to daughters who thrive in their own right?

Is it possible to do all that when we’re dealing with baggage of our own? 

In this episode, host of the Mother Daughter Connections Podcast, Dr. Michelle Deering shares how to build stronger, more empowering relationships with our daughters.

“The healthy relationship you desire with your kids is possible. It just requires you to pause, hold yourself to that pause, and start making changes where necessary.”

-Dr. Michelle Deering


Things You’ll Learn In This Episode


  1. The key to healthier communication with our children
    Understanding is vital for real conversations with our kids. When disagreements arise, we have to be mindful of where they’re at and what they’re going through, and then tailor our responses to that.
  2. Why moving forward requires reflection
    We can’t fix anything without facing it first. By taking a deep look into what’s going on in our own lives, we’ll be able to better understand why certain words, actions, and behaviors trigger us
  3. How to unearth our personal issues when we aren’t aware of them
    Self-reflection is often easier said than done, and more so when we aren’t aware of what’s holding us back. Sometimes it’s helpful to have someone else point those things out to us, whether that person be a friend, family member, or a therapist.
