PRLog - Feb. 9, 2013 - DALLAS -- Dallas, TX. According to The Office of Adolescent Health, trends in teen pregnancies and child bearing still show Texas leading in teen births. For teen birth rates within the age group of 15-19, "Texas ranked 4 out of 51 states and the District of Columbia in 2010. On Saturday, March 9, 2013, Dr. Trevicia Williams, is addressing the issue on a local level with a FREE, fun, educational, interactive mother teen daughter healthy relationships workshops.
"The mother daughter bond entails bequeathing intangibles such as emotional health, self esteem,and, subsequently, life satisfaction. The relationship is a foundation that enables daughters to express those emotions in other relationships through out life. Sensitivity, intelligence, creativity, a warm heart, a sense of accomplishment upon successfully achieving a goal, and, wisdom are all cultivated and nourished during a girl's primal years" says Dr. Williams. So, healthy mother daughter relationships are important because they determine the social and overall well-being of daughters later in life.
This event takes place from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm Saturday, March 9, 2013 during the Diamonds & Pearls: A Celebration of Women's Women's History event at the Preston Ridge Conference Center located at 9700 Wade Blvd., Frisco, TX 75035.

Healthy mother daughter relationships can prevent things like teen pregnancy, and, subsequently teen motherhood. According to Robin Hood Foundation compared children whose mothers were 17 or younger with children whose mothers were 20-21 when they gave birth. Research indicates that children born to teen mothers tend to have:
*lower cognitive test scores and more difficulty in school
*poorer health yet receive less health care
*less stimulating and supportive home environments
*higher levels of incarceration
*higher rates of adolescent childbearing themselves
Dr. Williams designed this fun interactive workshop for healthy mother-teen daughter relationships. Research shows the racing hormones and emotional changes that shape our daughters' adolescence can feel like a roller coaster ride. Dr. Williams, author of Pearls in the Pain of Every Experience: Girl Still, Woman Not Quite, facilitates the process for bridging the mother-daughter divide during girls' teen years. Mothers and teen daughters will have fun with pampering makeovers and spa treats while learning skills for effective communication to build healthy relationships.
During this interactive hands-on workshop, mothers and teen daughters will learn skills for effective communication to build healthy relationships, develop trust and respect, bond and grow. They will also be empowered and equipped to deal with "girl still, woman not quite" issues such as decision making, sex, and the transition from girl to young lady that oftentimes cause friction in their relationship during turbulent teen years.
