No doubt, mothers and daughters have a unique connection
It starts out nurturing and playful when they are children, travels through ignorance and stubbornness, and winds down to respect and admiration. How can that journey become a more joyful experience when we are both grown? Follow these 6 (simple?) rules for a better, more fulfilling mother-daughter relationship.
1. Tensions between two women, in general, can be stressful.
But between a mother and daughter it can be suffocating. Communication is the key.
Listen, talk, then listen some more. Ask questions. Don't judge.
Unravel the tension by being encouraging, accepting and offering unconditional love instead of offering advice. How? For mothers - step into your daughter's shoes. What pressures is she under? For daughters - see you mother as another woman. What experiences brought her to where she is? See your mother as another woman.
