THE DAUGHTERS’ CIRCLE
(Daughters talking, learning, healing)
Daughters’ Circle features authors and other experts who grew up without their fathers discussing the importance of daddies in girls’ lives. Much has been made about the importance of fathers to sons; but fathers are equally, if not more, important to their daughters. Participant will learn why. Further, they will have the opportunity to discuss their own relationships with their fathers and what they believe fathers bring to their daughters’ development into whole, healthy women. They will discuss what happens when fathers go absent, and they will examine the symptoms of the Fatherless Woman Syndrome. Daughters’ Circle, part of the Relationship Building and Outreach Project of The National Daughter-Daddy Reunion Tour, seeks to arrest and prevent problems associated with father absence including teen pregnancy, juvenile violence, and low academic achievement.
Daughters’ Circle is free. School officials interested in having an expert speak to their students and individuals interested in joining the support group may call 202.232.0780 or 202.232.0781. Please visit us at www.estherproductions.com
