Abstract

This research examined whether there is a difference when mother and daughter work on having a healthier relationship by enhancing their communication with each other, if there is change in mother's involvement in her daughter's school. The workshop was conducted with ten eighth-grade girls, a pre-test and post-test was used to measure changes. Communication between mother and daughter was examined using five categories. The results showed that daughters wanted their mothers to be more involved and there is a need for improvement with communication between the mother and daughter. Daughters needed to increase confident levels to be able to express themselves. Recommendations such as having both the mother and daughter at the workshop for future study were discussed.
