Girls' Friendships: Groups, Gossip & Gaslighting

Friday, Jan. 13, 2023

Austin, Texas

Girls' friendships are tricky and ever-changing. Being her parent, you either hear about the roller coaster ride of emotions or you experience the brunt of her hurt. In this workshop, you will walk away with specific strategies to help your daughter have the social life she wants.

What we will cover: 

  • Finding her tribe
  • The downside of being “popular”; helping her manage the demands of her social life
  • When her friends are unkind
  • Handling her anger at her friend(s)
  • Exclusion among her peers
  • Frenemies (part-time friends/part-time enemies)
  • Friend breakups
  • Creating boundaries with a troubled friend
  • Knowing when she needs outside support

Who is this for?

This workshop is for any parent feeling at a loss on how to help their girls with their friendships/social lives and any parent who is tired of seeing their daughter struggle. This workshop is for parents who want to teach their daughters how to be socially kind, engaged and happy.
