Event description

Description

Join Kim McCabe, author of “From Daughter To Woman” as she discusses practical ways to make the teenager’s journey safer, kinder and better supported, so that everyone can better enjoy the adolescent years.

This talk is for everyone interested in steering their daughters happily through their teens, from parents of daughters age 8 – 18 years, flummoxed grandmothers and caring aunties too, and anyone who works closely with pre-teen and teenage girls. The talk includes a question and answer session with Kim at the end. Kim's book will be on sale and she will be available to sign copies.

Best-selling author and psychologist Steve Biddulph says, “I can’t believe how much depth and the range of ideas Kim has put into one book.”

“One thing is I know that this is the type of book I can keep dipping in and out for a long time. I found it all insightful, without any preachiness. I was reassured from the outset … this book has helped boost my confidence that I am doing a good job to help [my daughter].”

Zoé, Mother of Pre-Teen Girl

“Important piece of work. I have never understood the pressures on my daughter until today. It gives me a lot of tools to be a better dad.”

Jim, Father of Teen Girl

Kim’s “Girls Journeying Together” groups will be launched in Nottingham in Spring 2019 with qualified facilitator, Johanna Bramham.

Please note that admission is for ticket-holders only.

FAQs

Are there minimum age requirements to enter the event?

This seminar is suitable for adults.

Is the talk for Dad’s too?

Dads are welcome and encouraged. Kim talks about the impact of the father-daughter relationship.

What if I’m not a parent?

Please come, children benefit hugely from the attention of adults who aren’t parents. Teachers, youth workers, godparents, 'aunties' all have a powerful part to play in guiding our next generation.

My daughter is only 5, is this talk still for me?

Parents say that they no longer dread the teens years after hearing Kim speak and they feel better prepared. They come away with tools they can put into immediate use whatever their child’s age.

I’ve got sons, can I still come along?

Absolutely, much of what Kim talks about applies to boys as well as girls


What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Alderman White School has a car park. It's also on public transport routes including NCT bus 36 from Nottingham city centre.
