Mother-Daughter relationships can be one of the most complicated and one of the most deeply rewarding relationships a woman can experience in her life. With decades of life and shared experiences, mothers and daughters often confront challenging circumstances surrounding individual and relationship growth. In the above segment from KATU’s Afternoon Live, I talk about some of the challenges that arise between mothers and daughters. Below you’ll find some tips to increasing connection (also shared on the show).
Remember you are two separate women with distinct values, goals, hopes and dreams.
Commit to listening deeply to the other person’s experience.
Take a genuine interest in getting to know the person as they are today.
Set boundaries around rehashing old hurts from the past.
Spend time doing things you both enjoy!!!
