Imagine having all the answers to raising a healthy daughter!
- Knowing what to do to encourage her to eat healthy food without nagging.
- Having her know the importance of exercise and wanting to do it with you.
- Knowing what to say when she says she doesn’t like her body.
- Knowing how to help her express her emotions and learn to cope with prepubescent challenges.
Imagine raising a daughter who is able to honor hunger and fullness cues and has a trusting relationship between food and her body.
Imagine raising a daughter who enjoys physical activity for the psychological, social and physical benefits it provides her.
Imagine raising a daughter who is comfortable in her skin and is confident when challenges are in front of her.
The mid-to late elementary school years are when girls look to their mother for guidance and confirmation on how to live a healthy and happy life. This can be a vulnerable time for moms since it can bring up memories of their own challenging late adolescent years and struggles that they may still be working through as an adult.
If you’re like me, you grew up in the 80s and 90s when fat would make you fat, people sweat to the oldies to burn off last night’s dessert, and South Beach was not a vacation destination.
Fast forward to today. Diets have been renamed to “wellness plans” under the guise of promoting a healthy lifestyle. However, these “wellness plans” are still encouraging us and our daughters to eliminate food groups, they are promoting false images of what our bodies should look like, and they are making us focus more on the way we look and what we eat instead of fueling our power and achievements.
And with the introduction of social media, harmful ideals and behaviors are reaching our girls earlier and earlier.
Did you know…
- A rapidly changing body can cause worry as physical development often occurs before mental, social, and emotional maturity.
- The onset of anorexia is most commonly around the same time as puberty.
- Girls have an increased risk of developing an eating disorder if they have a family history of eating disorders or disordered eating.
- By age 14, many girls are dropping out of sports at two times the rate of boys.
- The most common mental health issues experienced in adolescence are stress, anxiety, and depression.
- Female adolescents have been reported to be two to three times more likely to experience anxiety and depression as their male peers.
These statistics are scary, and as mothers, we can feel helpless against the messages that society sends our girls.
And it is only the beginning.
Once our daughters reach middle school, they will be exposed to even more peer pressures and social media images and ideals.
Well & Strong helps moms of elementary age daughters teach intuitive eating, the fun of physical activity, and self-care so they can raise a daughter who is healthy, self-compassionate, and has a positive relationship with her body, food, and her mom.

Meet Your Coach
I’m Taren Weyer and I want to help you raise a strong and confident daughter.
I’m a certified health coach and youth fitness instructor, mom of two daughters, and survivor of adolescence! I am dedicated to helping moms raise daughters who are healthy, emotionally and physically, confident, and someone who can trust her own body.
I do this work because I know what it’s like to raise two daughters in a society full of negative food and body messages. I lost more than three decades of my life to body distrust and disordered eating, missing out on countless important moments during my adolescence, adulthood, and most importantly, with my daughters.
After 7 years of coaching POW! Girls Running Team, training adult women athletes, and health coaching moms to regain their own intuitive eating skills and self-compassion, I discovered that moms want to raise healthy daughters, but didn’t want to pass on the negative body and food messages they grew up with (and still struggle with today).
I discovered that moms want to raise healthy daughters but want a road map so they can break the cycle of negativity passed down from the previous generation.
