5 Intentional Ways to Connect with Your Daughter
Read a book together.
Last summer we went through Braver, Stronger, Smarter together. It is such an amazing workbook for elementary-aged girls. My daughter has referenced it many times over the past year. I set a reminder in my phone and we sat down to read a section of it every week.
Have a spa night at home.
One of my daughter’s favorite things is to have a spa night at home. She loves Olive and June nail polish so we usually paint our fingernails and toenails. My mother-in-law gifted us with a foot spa and it has added some extra fun. Some nights we will also add in some face masks.
Read a devotional together.
Start an evening routine of reading a devotional together. Lately, we have been loving this one. It brings her comfort and has been a constant rhythm.
Have a coffee date together.
Elementary-aged girls love to feel a part of things. I have found that surprising my daughter with a special drink on an errand run brings her so much joy! She loves getting Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino.
Try something new together.
What is something that your daughter is interested in? See if you could try it together. My daughter thought it would be fun to try hair tinsel. We found some on Amazon and tried it out! It was so much fun and a simple way to laugh and connect together.
The mother-daughter relationship can be filled with ups and downs. As your daughter goes through different phases your relationship may fluctuate. One thing we can focus on is finding intentional ways to connect and have fun together.
