Creating Deeper Connections With Our Girls

Developing and nurturing relationships with our girls can be challenging when we feel out of touch with how they are feeling and what they are experiencing. Social media, peer-pressure, dating, and expectations for academic excellence can be stressful.

Learn how use care, respect, mindfulness, and equity to connect with girls at home and at school in this intriguing conversation with Dr. Stephanie Akoumany and Jen Cort on the “Third Space with Jen Cort" podcast.
