The Complicated Mother-Daughter Relationship

Authentic Parenting

23-09-2021 • 1 hr 5 mins

The mother-daughter relationship is one of the most important—and complicated in the lives of most adult women.

Helping my patients understand their mothers has helped me become familiar with parts of myself - and my mother - I might have never known if not for the stories I've heard, says Judith Rabinor, PhD,

We don't choose our mothers but as an adult you always have an opportunity to choose new pathways. It's never too late to let go of frustrated expectations and celebrate the connection you might have thought was doomed to disappointment and hurt.

Your mother is the most important woman you have ever known.

I’d love to suggest some books that I have found helpful:

  1. Motherless Daughters: The legacy of loss by Hope Edelman
  2. Motherless Mothers: How mother loss shapes the parents we become by Hope Edelman
  3. The Emotionally Absent Mother,: How to Recognize and Heal the Invisible Effects of Childhood Emotional Neglect
  4. The Drama of the Gifted Child by Alice Miller
  5. Mothers Who Can’t Love by Susan Forward
