It is so vital but often a missed opportunity to empower. So many women were once girls and they encountered none or a poor rendition of "the talk" with their mothers. This has impacted their lives into womanhood.

How DO you talk to your daughter about sex and womanhood? Its so very personal and yet universal.

Please join Denise Bolds, MSW and her special guest therapist and author Joyce T. McFadden as Joyce's book: "Your Daugter;s Bedroom is discussed.

Drawing on over a thousand responses, Your Daughter’s Bedroom offers a new and unprecedented look at the mother-daughter bond. McFadden argues that the type of womanhood mothers model for their daughters determines the young girls’ comfort with their own bodies which, in turn, leads to confidence and satisfaction later in life. From the most mundane and everyday gestures—a reluctance to call body parts by their real name; an offhanded suggestion to lose weight— to how mothers introduce life altering events such as the start of puberty and sexual exploration, all of these have an impact on a girl’s psyche. She found that in an attempt to protect and shield daughters, mothers withhold important information and leave girls to wrestle with their own bourgeoning sexuality and other challenges of growing up.

Offering a fresh perspective on the fraught mother-daughter relationship, McFadden shows how mothers can create the right environment for their daughters to grow into self-assured women. Your Daughter’s Bedroom is an essential resource for women who want to establish a more open and positive relationship with their daughters.
