You asked, we listened.
Listening is a skill.
You asked us two questions.
1. Why our ‘Moving on up’ course is only for girls?
2. I can’t make the live sessions. Will they be recorded?
Answer 1: We were wrong. And here’s why.
‘HOW Inspire’ is our signature digital membership for teen girls only. We hold a safe space for young women to come and be themselves at an age when everything is changing. They can talk openly about their changing bodies, hormones, friendship, anxieties, navigating social media and relationships whilst meeting amazing role models and forming an awesome community along the way. Sometimes, this is best done with just us girls to discuss. It’s a weekly call with videos on: an open community of awesome teens. Inspiring, exciting, safe.
‘Moving on up’ is NEW!
Maybe we got a bit stuck in our ways.
Maybe a bit stuck in our comfort zone.
‘Moving on up’ is recorded and with no cameras on for attendees...
This is a bit of a personal one.
Those of you who know us as a family will already be aware of this but, for those that don’t, I thought that maybe sharing my feelings can help others with theirs.
This is for any children, teens, young adults, older adults who have lost a pet.
I have never had a dog before.
When I was growing up over time we had a guinea pig, a couple of rabbits, a hamster and later on a cat.
But, never a dog.
My husband wanted two. Mulder and Scully #TheXFiles
So, after we had Polly who is now 14, Scully was the next to enter the family and last week we said a very sad goodbye.
Scully was a bit of an extraordinary dog. Everyone who met him loved him.
You’d be looking around wondering where he was on the beach and calling his name to always find him by your feet.
He never went far.
You’d leave food on the side or wander around a market full of delicious smells and he’d have a sniff and walk on by.
He’d take himself off into the woods to...
WE LOVE THE SEA!
Swimming in it, exploring it and, most of all, protecting it.
So, with National Marine Week at the beginning of August and so many of you hopefully enjoying everything the coast has to offer this summer, our WFRDB this month celebrates one of the most important elements on our planet.
There is something incredibly healing about spending time in the sea and Jamaican surfer Imani Wilmot uses surfing as a way to transform the tough lives of the women around her by helping them to avoid a life of violence and crime. Surf Girl Jamaica highlights her aim to develop self-motivation, a sense of community and respect for the environment whilst also inspiring girls of colour from all over the world to see that they have a place in the surf industry. This film (directed by the brilliant Joya and Lucy from The Right to Roam centres on the first all-female surfing competition in Jamaica.

What’s the link between snorkelling, an online course and starting secondary school?
Doing something that scares you!
Yes, snorkelling used to scare me.
Doing something different is scary.
Signing up for an online course can feel scary.
Going up to senior school is also a bit scary even for parents!
Some kids are naturally super excited, others daunted and nervous.
It is a big change.
A change that we can help navigate.
Do you want to help your daughter flourish and thrive whilst navigating the big jump from Year 6 to Year 7.
Does it keep you up at night thinking of all the pitfalls she may encounter along the way?
Do you want to give you both the best possible start to Year 7 with information and support from several experts including a GP, a psychotherapist, teen mentors and an experienced Year 7 tutor?
We have something that will really help.
‘Moving on up’ is a NEW online course designed especially for girls going into senior school…...

Davina McCall: Sex, Myths & the Menopause (available on 4OD)
We find it frustrating that women don’t feel that they can talk about the menopause and apparently so does Davina! You will have seen over the last 12 months that we’ve run a number of talks with VHK Education Dr Heidi Kerr and Dr Victoria Hobbs who offer appointments via Health and Her platform. We’ve discussed this taboo subject and all the battles that come along with it. So we love that this is now getting some air time on our TV screens and raising awareness of what the menopause is really about. Davina talks to many women from different backgrounds with a range of different experiences who are all brave enough to share their story and help you to realise that you are not alone.
For any BBC Radio 2 listeners, this name may already be familiar to you as he hosts a show on a Sunday night at 10pm all about mental health and wellbeing. On his...
We are lucky enough to have some incredibly engaged parents and teenagers within our membership.
Here are two of them telling you what they love about the HOW Inspire membership.
Two very different answers going to prove that each girl takes different things away from each session. Bethan, aged 12, and Claudia, aged 14.
But... if you are not happy then we are not happy.
Not every digital or off the shelf product in the world will appeal to everyone.
Your daughter's future is important to us, we want her to enjoy, engage and get huge value from what we do so if you are not happy then you can leave no questions asked within the first 30 days and get your money back.
We are here to help the girls to find that spark, the moment that might change their path in life. For them to be inspired and engaged.
By going live 7-8pm on Thursdays BST we hold a safe space to engage with our members and invite speakers, role models and mentors who come and...
Let’s just get it out there. It is tough.
It has twists and turns like no other road in life.
The highs and the lows are bigger than the highest mountain climb and there is NO instruction manual.
When we have our babies we gather and grow a support network.
Baby groups, playgroups, surrounding ourselves with other people doing what we are doing. Supporting and nurturing ourselves through this new time, safe in the knowledge that everyone else has hard times too.
Then that all stops.
Life gets in the way and we muddle along knowing everyone else has struggles too but not really looking to talk about it.
This is our first full day dedicated to parents.

Our membership parents told us that they need this.
So, we provided it.

Drop everything and WATCH THIS. Two clips, under three minutes each, that will change your mindset and you will want to share with others.
Do it. You will thank yourself, promise.
The biggest Welsh rugby fan in America, Director of Infrastructure Operations at Amazon and previously MD of GE Aviation here in Wales La-Chun came to talk to our HOW Inspire membership and we all left feeling totally inspired, pumped and ready to go and chase our dreams... she loved it as much as we did too!
“We have forgotten how to be good guests, how to walk lightly on the earth as its other creatures do.”
Over the last 12 months, we have all been forced to open our eyes and take a moment to appreciate the world around us.
Clearing our beaches and public spaces of litter has always been a huge passion of ours at HOW HQ. We have collaborated with 2 minute beach clean to bring a #2minutebeachclean board to our local beach...
