a guide to starting your own book club to help raise strong, confident tweens
I’m on a mission to empower our tweens and raise confident, strong, healthy and happy young girls and therefore have created a new session offering called Tween Uprising (more on that later, for now – go follow my new instagram page here).
One of the ways I believe we can achieve this is by solidifying the bond between mothers and daughters and a simple way to accomplish this goal is by starting a tween mother-daughter book club to build self esteem and provide tools to help navigate the issues girls face today. This offers a way to spend some special time with your daughter to explore ideas and feelings and encourage meaningful conversation for tricky topics. I believe communication between mothers and daughters has never been more complex or more crucial.
Why start a mother-daughter book club?
Besides the obvious reason of helping build your child’s reading skills and love of books, mother-daughter book clubs have many valuable benefits including:
-providing more challenging books for strong readers
-providing additional practice for weaker readers
-building strong emotional bonds with daughters
-provides a safe place to talk about books without a test or grade afterwards
-social opportunities for mothers
-social opportunities for girls
-addressing important aspects of family life, such as imparting religious values, reinforcing racial identity, or fostering an appreciation for art or music
-helping girls become more confident by providing a safe place for them to express their opinions and use their intelligence, apart from the environment of school where some girls dumb themselves down
