“How to Be a Woman”: Parenting Our Daughters Through Adolescence is a peer-led discussion, support and activist group for Newton mothers of tween/teen daughters who are interested in figuring out how to best empower, support and protect our girls.
Goals of the group include:
- To get current information and share our own experiences on various topics relevant to raising teen girls today (e.g. body image, media images, mental health, dating, sexism and harassment).
- To be a safe place for moms to share questions and concerns about their daughters or the local teen community.
- To develop an action plan to address each topic directly and to share our insights with others.
- To be a starting point for positive social change – hopefully, with a sense of humor!
Kick-off meeting: November 7th, 7:30-9:00 pm at Samadhi, 796 Beacon St, Newton Center (near B Street restaurant). For more information or to RSVP, please contact: Kim Gallaugher at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-558-0092.
