              Mother-Daughter Communication 

              
              Mother-daughter communication is one of
              the most important things that can lead to a
              good relationship. Adolescence can a grim time
              if you don’t get along with your mother. Yet
              most of time it isn’t your fault if you don’t get
              along with your mother.
             
              Adolescence seems to be a time when your
              mother may want to separate herself from you.
              Mothers seem to be uncertain when their
              daughters start developing into young ladies.
              First adolescent girls start wearing bras. Then
              they start their periods. And then there is a lot
              of psychological development going on.
             
              Adolescence is a time when we want to do
              what we want to do. We test. We want to be
              right. We don’t want to do what our parents
              want. We just want to be. We want to be
              autonomous. We want to be on our own. Yet
              we are still very dependent on our parents. Put
              we have to keep going somehow.
             
              And mothers just get totally overwhelmed
              and uncertain too when they see their
              adolescent girls getting more mature and more
              independent. They feel threatened, and they
              want to say, no, you can’t do that. But nature
              takes its course, whether a mother wants it or
              not.
             
              What can we do to effectively communicate
              with our mothers? This is a difficult topic to
              tackle all in one blog since in order to develop
              effective communication between daughter and
              mother takes a long time and is very complex.
              It totally depends on the relationship that you
              develop during this time and how close you are
              when you teen years start.
             
              Next time, I will give you some hands on things
              that you could do your part to try to develop
              effective communication between you and your
              mom. But remember if it doesn’t work, it isn’t your
              fault.
