Launching Your Daughter podcast was created to support parents and caregivers in empowering their tween and teen girls as they prepare for young adulthood. Guests will be interviewed to discuss topics such as anxiety, perfectionism, depression, trauma, relationship struggles, budgeting time and money, nutrition and self-care. Conversations about mindfulness, self compassion, mind, body and spirit connections, holistic and alternative approaches used in psychotherapy and counseling will also be explored.

Increíble real challenges that families struggle in life and specially with daughters. For me is being a blessing this podcast because I am learning so new skills, others I review them, which is always good and the most important, the issues they talk are so practical and with plenty examples of the daily life time.

Good job ! Thank you so much for sharing your experience. Because of your podcast And following your suggestion to repair, today after hear podcast, I went to talk to my 14 years old daughter with the intention of repering a misunderstood situation we had in the past. I apologized with her and talk about emotions but not that much . This apology was not the tone that I do it, at least for 9 times I try but we’re not real . Didn’t connect us.Today I did, with the difference was that my “ I am sorry if I wasn’t there for you when you need me” this time I mean it! Thank you a lot. Exited to do this journey with you. Thank you again.
