Ditch the Angst And Show Your Daughter How To Dance Into her Future – 3 Easy Tips

Is your daughter’s behavior a bit of a riddle right now?

You may be thinking it’s just spring fever; but I suspect something else is going on – at least that’s what my clients are telling me.

If you’re confused by  your daughter’s overly dramatic responses or inability to disconnect from YouTube – you may want to read this!

And, I’d like to invite you to look at Spring Fever a little differently.
