Building The Mother-Daughter Bond

Maureen Harvie

Baltimore nonprofit Building Our Nation’s Daughters -- BOND -- carves out time for single moms and their daughters to improve communication skills, set goals, and have fun.

Founder Ateira Griffin says her experience as an educator inspired her to create the program. We hear from Griffin and her mother, Alisa Williams.

Plus, Christina Jacobs and her daughter, Madison, describe how BOND helped them turn time spent sitting in traffic into an opportunity for deep conversation.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
