"Mothers and daughters have a special bond and it is important that we carve out special mother and daughter activities, such as time spent nurturing and creating memories"

The memories we have of our mum last a life-time and it can be easy to find that during our typical day-to-day schedule (especially if you work full time or have other children) there can be little time left to spend creating special time together. 

Not only can we miss opportunities to do nice activities together, but we might also be teaching our daughters not to stop, not to slow down, not to take time to smell the roses! This can become a disservice to them when they grow into teenager and then women who don’t know how to slow down.  This mother and daughter Red Tent is gentle and a place to model slowing down whilst enjoying the company of other women and girls.  We want to share the message that slowing down and taking some ‘me’ time is something that has value and worth in their lives.

There is an extra little secret agenda to share with you about why we have created this space for you and your daughter(s).  We also want to introduce your daughter(s) to the nourishment of connection that is possible in circle space, because we know that being a 21st century teenager can be tough.  

Teenagers will more often look towards their peers and not their parents for support and advice.  As parents, it is important to recognise this as a healthy developmental stage, and by planting seeds now with our girls will increase the likely-hood that as teenagers they will continue to feel comfortable in a held circle setting.  This space we call The Girl’s Shed or maybe it might even be a local youth group or something similar.
