Parents love this class!

""Incredible program in all ways!  Thank you so much for so many meaningful ideas and concrete practices!”

"This has been amazing thank you ladies for all your pearls of wisdom!”

"Brilliant! Thanks Maggie and Susan!"

Are you mystified by your daughter's moods?

Is she a people pleaser who puts others' needs above her own?

Do you struggle to help your daughter make sense of friendship dramas?

Do you find yourself triggered, impatient, or judgmental over your daughter's upsets?

Do you wish the boys and men in your life had a better understanding of female emotions?

Today's parents are blazing trails as they raise daughters who are strong, confident, and authentically themselves.

While the payoff is enormous, many of us struggle to give our daughters the support they need when we ourselves were taught things like, "Good girls are quiet!", "Boys don't like girls who are smart!" or "Be nice to everyone!"

We may want our daughters to be assertive, yet find ourselves irritated when they stand their ground.

We may encourage them to feel all their feelings, while finding their emotions "too much."

We may want them to value their spirit and intelligence as much as their physical appearance, but worry when they gain weight or wear "unflattering" clothing.

We may be clueless about how to help them fit in socially when we see endless dramas unfold with friends.

In this Master Class, Maggie Dent and Susan Stiffelman will explore the challenges of raising strong girls who trust themselves, speak their truth, and know how to maintain healthy, mutually respectful relationships.


Gender is more fluid than fixed, and while respecting biological, neurological and hormonal differences, there is not an ‘all boys’ or ‘all girls’ reality.

On top of that, there is social conditioning that is deeply embedded in culture and ancestry. So when we use the term ‘girls’, we will be referring to a statistically significant number of girls; however, much of what we will be sharing may also be relevant to boys and people of all other gender identities.

Maggie and Susan encourage you to take from this what feels right for you. All genders need to be seen as equally fabulous, including our gender-fluid children. Every child ever born is born a unique miracle with their own individuality.

As Maggie Dent says, "Gender is more fluid than fixed.

I encourage you to take from this class what feels right for you."
