Regardless of how old or young your daughter may be, finding fun activities to do together is essential in keeping that mother-daughter relationship alive. Maybe people say you act more like sisters than mother and daughter, or they may say the two of you are so different they would never guess that you were even related. Regardless, doing activities together is the best way to keep the mother-daughter bond strong.
- Skill level:
Go shopping. It may be cliché but shopping together is a true bonding experience. It's great to see the differences in tastes, but malls offer a variety of stores to meet each of your needs, and by keeping disapprovals at a minimum, it opens the relationship to learn something new about each other.
Get moving and find exercise activities that you can do together. Maybe it's a weekly fitness class, going for walks or bike rides together or just encouraging each other with a new diet. Whatever activities you choose, concentrating on your health is a great way to spend time together as mother and daughter.
Plan some pampering time together. Having someone else tend to your manicure or pedicure forces you to sit back and relax, and having them done together allows the two of you to spend that relaxation time together.
Take in a movie. Whether you choose to go out for a movie or rent one and stay in, it's a great way to experience something together and gives you something to talk about afterwards.
Register for a class together. Taking a class together allows you both to learn something new and practice activities between classes together, while giving you something to have in common to do as mother and daughter for years afterwards. It may just open up new horizons for you as well.
