Power Struggles Between Mothers and Daughters?

Posted on: June 6, 2010

               It is difficult to understand why an
               emotional rift of sorts develops between
               mothers and daughters. There is a real
               power struggle that occurs and there is no
               denying it.
               Mothers start criticizing everything that
               their daughters do. Mothers can’t really be
               content with anything that daughters their
               do. It seems that mothers put down their
               daughters for the way they look, they way
               they act, the way they move, they way they
               dress, who they hang around with, what
               they want to try, and so on.
               Mothers are even seemingly unhappy
               when their daughters do something different
               from what they did. I remember playing
               basketball in high school. Since my Mother
               never played any kind of sport, she was very
               critical of it. She was so upset about the
               whole ordeal that she never even came to see
               any of my games.
               Are Mothers envious of their daughters?
               Would they love to be young again but
               can’t? Why don’t mothers and daughters get
               along more? These questions aren’t
               answered in the same way for everyone.
               Power struggles come about between
               mothers and daughters because of a
               fundamental lack of communication
               between daughters and mothers. Daughters
               then begin to feel alienated from their
               mothers. And this is when the real
               problems set in.
