It was 10 years ago that psychiatrist SuEllen Hamkins and psychologist Renee Schultz began their mother-daughter group. Today, both Hamkins and Schultz say the group helped their daughters grow into confident -- yet still connected -- teenagers.

The daughters agree. Tiama Hamkins-Indik is Hamkins' 17-year-old daughter. This fall, she'll be a freshman at Olin College of Engineering in Boston. She's an enthusiastic, articulate young woman who says she now has a wonderful relationship with her mother.
