Empowering mums to raise strong, confident young women

The Mothering Girls’ Mission

To educate, support and inspire mums and their pre-teen girls on how to live resilient, strong and connected, in today’s world.


There is so little support for mums of pre-teens yet it is such a critical age for preparing our girls for the world. It is too late to wait until adolescence hits to equip them with the knowledge and skills they need to thrive.

Research has shown that stable, loving and responsive relationships are fundamental to a girl’s development. Relationships where she learn how to think, understand, communicate and develop social skills. And one of her most important relationships is with you – her mum!

Mothering Girls is dedicated to creating a tribe of women who take on the challenge of helping our girls navigate these challenging but rewarding years ahead and reach their full potential.
