Prioritizing time with my daughters

Time Together  Mother Daughter Art  Mom by RoseHillDesignStudio:

Spending time with my daughters outside of my daily `bossing`them around and mundane activities, can often times be challenging, especially since I have three! In other words, I want to nurture my bond with each of them but I’m not always making the time.

My two eldest daughters are beginning to shift from little girls to adolescence. During this stage in life a new type of emotional distance begins to emerge. As a result, our once seemingly effortless bonds begin to take work to build and maintain. Although our love for one another will always be unconditional, I also want my daughters to remember the time we spent with one another.

My youngest daughter still thinks I’m the coolest human in the world. My middle daughter still craves time alone with me however she is beginning to feel embarrassed by some of the things I do and say. And my teenage daughter feels like every word that comes out of my mouth is a nag! Needless to say, they’re all at different phases in life.

Last week I encouraged my eldest daughter to try a hot yoga deep stretch and relaxation class with me. She loved the way she felt afterwards. We talked on the car ride home,  (well, I listened and she talked) but it filled me up knowing we spent some time with one another. I’m sure she also loved that I was listening over lecturing.

Essentially, I ultimately want to make connecting with my daughters a high priority. In all honesty, I don’t want to look back one day and regret the fact that I didn’t prioritize time spent with them.

After all, studies show that a strong mother -daughter connection determines our daughters future relationships, and essentially affects their over-all self-esteem.

  1. I hear ya. I only have one girl, so I couldn’t imagine having to work on that bond with three, but I have no worries that you’re doing it exceptionally. Girls are a toughy. I have three boys and all they want is an audience when they burp and fart.
