In 1984 two young mothers meet at a toddler group in Birmingham. As their friendship grows, they share with each other the difficulties and secrets in their lives: Joanne, a sweet, shy girl, is increasingly afraid of her husband. The lively, promising man she married has become hostile and violent and she is too ashamed to tell anyone. When her mother, Margaret is suddenly rushed into hospital, the bewildered family find that there are things about their mother of which they had no idea. Margaret was evacuated from Birmingham as a child and has spent years avoiding the pain of her childhood – but finds that you can't run from the past forever. Sooky, kind and good-natured, has already been through one disastrous marriage and is back at home living with her parents. But being disgraced is not easy. Her mother, Meena, refuses to speak to Sooky. At first her silence seems like a punishment, but Sooky gradually realizes it contains emotions which are far more complicated and that her mother may need her help. Meena has spent 20 years trying to fit in with life in Birmingham, and to deal with the conflicts within her between east and west, old ways and new. This is the story of two young women discovering the heartbreak of their mothers lives, and of how mothers create daughters – and learn from them.

Mother-daughter relationships are complex and diverse. Some mothers and daughters are best friends. Others talk once a week. Some see each other weekly; others live in different states or countries. Some spar regularly. Some avoid conflict. Others talk through everything. And undoubtedly, there're a hint of all these things in most relationships. This book gives you a glimpse into a family where dysfunction became the norm, like many families today, while offering solutions as well as insight into the mother/daughter relationships. It offers great suggestions for communication in difficult situations, also preceding a workbook to compliment and walk through the practical aspects of healing and mending. In this book, you will find information, guidance, instruction, inspiration and encouragement for every mother who has a daughter and every daughter who is a mom.

This book is perfect for that mother-daughter relationship that we all love and want. There is plenty of room for both Mom and Daughter to write at will - this fun and entertaining book has some prompts but is very unstructured, so the nature of the relationship itself can come through. The book presents itself as a gift from Mother to Daughter, but it can be used in either direction. There are 53 weeks or one full year worth of writing to accomplish, but the months are numbered, not named, and the dates are fill-in, so there's no pressure or rush to start at any particular date or time. What a lovely way for Mother and Daughter to keep their memories. This makes a wonderful Mother's Day gift. Perfect for pre-teen, tween and even older teen girls and their mothers. Size is 105 pages 8.5" x 11" for easy carrying. Not too heavy but plenty of room to write!

This is a book about where to find them, when to keep them, why to break it off and how to lose them. It's a book that tackles such important questions as: How do you read between the lines to discern what's true and what's not? Should you fake orgasm? Is it okay to break up via voice mail? What if your kids don't like him? And what should you write in your on-line ad? We fervently believe this book will enable all single women to learn what we've learned, laugh along with us at our mistakes and thus have an easier time charting those uncharted waters on their way to new relationships. Mothers and daughters compare notes on all sorts of things, but few get to compare notes on the dating scene, let alone write a mother-daughter dating book together. We didn't plan things this way. I suddenly found myself widowed after 19 years of marriage and my daughter, Andi, became a divorcee after ten years of marriage. We both re-emerged as singles at times in our lives when we least expected to do so. We discovered over the years as we compared notes, soothed each other's egos, offered encouragement, and giggled uproariously over some of the funnier anecdotes our dating experiences have yielded that commiseration was a learning and healing experience and most important of all great fun. We decided to broaden the circle and interview our friends two very different generations of dating women and we found we had all reached many similar conclusions, namely that there are few problems that can't be rectified, that women are too hard on themselves in dealing with men, and that it's far better to laugh than to take these things too seriously. Kiss and Tell: Tales by a Mother and Daughter is filled with our stories and newfound wisdom. We look at how children fit into the dating picture for younger women. Is it possible to find a man who not only loves you but also adores your children? And we look at the discomfort older women might feel about suddenly dating again after forty plus years of marriage. Invaluable dos and don'ts of dating are included throughout the book

With such groundbreaking bestsellers as Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdomand The Wisdom of Menopause, Dr. Christiane Northrup is one of today’s most trusted and visionary medical experts. Now she presents her most profound and revolutionary approach to women’s health. . . .The mother-daughter relationship sets the stage for our state of health and well-being for our entire lives. Because our mothers are our first and most powerful female role models, our most deeply ingrained beliefs about ourselves as women come from them. And our behavior in relationships—with food, with our children, with our mates, and with ourselves—is a reflection of those beliefs. Once we understand our mother-daughter bonds, we can rebuild our own health, whatever our age, and create a lasting positive legacy for the next generation. Mother-Daughter Wisdomintroduces an entirely new map of female development, exploring the "five facets of feminine power," which range from the basics of physical self-care to the discovery of passion and purpose in life. This blueprint allows any woman—whether ornot she has children—–to repair the gaps in her own upbringing and create a better adult relationship with her mother. If she has her own daughter, it will help her be the mother she has always wanted to be. Written with warmth, enthusiasm, and rare intelligence, Mother-Daughter Wisdom is an indispensable book destined to change lives and become essential reading for all women.

This is the second issue of Psychoanalytic Inquiry devoted to mothers and daughters. This project began as the mother-daughter bond was calling out for attention in light of the many advances in our understanding of female psychology. The goal of female development is no longer considered to be a severing of the mother-daugher bond to attain autonomy and sexual maturity. What, then, are its vicissitudes as it is revisited, reworked, and transformed as the girl and her mother grow and develop and ultimately attain a state of interdependence? The relational context of development is now considered: gender-related differences in behavior and in parental interaction; and the girl's special relationship with her mother and her mother's body and the importance to her of her own body with its special attributes, contours, and sensations.

In 1976, Adrienne Rich wrote in Of Woman Born: Motherhood as Experience and Institution that "the cathexis between mother and daughter--essential, distorted, misused--is the great unwritten story." In the quarter century since Rich wrote those words, the topic of mothers and daughters has emerged as a salient issue in feminist scholarship. Using women's writing, film, feminist theory, and personal experience, contributors to Mothers and Daughters explore how the mother/daughter relationship is represented and experienced as a site of empowerment. This volume will offer readers an important and welcome chapter in the story of the complex relationship that is a part of nearly every woman's life.

Women are encouraged to believe that they can occupy top jobs in society by the example of other women thriving in their careers. Who better to be a role model for career success than your mother? Paradoxically, this book shows that having a mother as a role model, even for graduates of top universities, does not predict daughters progressing in their own careers. It finds that mothers with careers, whilst highly influential in their daughters’ choice of career path, rarely mentor their daughters as they progress. This is partly explained by ‘quiet ambition’ – the tendency of women to be modest about their achievements. Bigger issues are the twin pressures from contemporary motherhood and workplace culture that ironically lead career women’s daughters to believe that being a ‘good mother’ means working part-time. This stalls career progress. Based on a large, cross-generational qualitative sample, this book offers a timely and original perspective on the debate about gender equality in leadership positions.

The dark path of jealousy is one with which many women are familiar. When envy frames the mother-daughter relationship, it creates a push-pull effect of love and hate, often affecting the daughter's psychological development. The roots of this envy are based in the personal mythology of both mother and daughter as well as in a culture that encourages solitary female mothering, engendering exclusivity and possessiveness. The envied daughter eventually develops an internal jealous-mother archetype and responds to this archetype in a number of ways, depending on her own myth and personality. The archetypal witch may run rampant in the envied daughter's psyche, influencing how she relates to herself and the world around her. Using the lenses of depth psychology, mythology, cultural analysis, feminist theory and systemic perspectives, and Buddhist philosophy, Daughters of Envy: Women and Maternal Betrayal explores definitions of mothering, mother-daughter symbiosis, psychological attachment issues, emotional orphanhood, manifestations of envy, and the heroic journey a woman makes when she confronts the archetypal witch. Research includes literary review and analysis as well as interviews with self-identified envied daughters. Also included are artistic representations of the heroine's descent into the underworld and her ascent into a new consciousness. This study finds that envy and betrayal between women is a pattern often passed from one generation to the next, especially when women assume the demanding role of primary caregiver to children. It is possible that the betraying, exclusive mother-daughter relationship can be eased by social and individual change. If men and women assume equal parenting responsibility and children are raised by several adults (including family members, friends, and reliable daycare providers), this can provide daughters with a broad and consistent base of support that promotes secure attachment and healthy models of behavior. This contributes to the daughter's self-confidence and her ability to make choices that support her well-being. For the envied adult daughter to transform her inner witch, she must recognize her own capacity for jealousy and betrayal, establish a new, more compassionate relationship with this archetype, and claim the boon of her heroic journey--herself.

Cultural bias demands that mothers keep their daughters tied to them. Through maintaining attachments with their daughters, mothers are encouraged to fulfill their needs for interpersonal connectedness, for relatedness.

Provide more effective services for the victims of this underreported, rarely investigated form of sexual abuse! Until recently, mother-child incest was considered to be virtually nonexistent. The majority of the sexual abuse literature focused on male-perpetrated abuse or father-daughter incest. Mother-Daughter Incest: A Guide for Helping Professionals fills that gap in the literature, making an important contribution to knowledge and therapeutic practice by adding the voices of these survivors to the dialogue. This important new book describes the phenomenon and aftermath of mother-daughter incest, focusing on the victim's perception of and reaction to her experience. This book's unique approach integrates psychological theory and practical interventions with the words of the survivors themselves. Their revealing and moving first-person testimonies keenly articulate daughters' reactions to sexual abuse at the hands of their mothers, their past and present relationships with their mothers, and their perceptions of the impact of their mothers' abuse on their lives. This vital book explores: the unique dynamics, psychological impact, and sequelae of this type of incest factors that contribute to the underreporting and underinvestigation of mother-daughter incest the significance of the mother-daughter bond, plus cultural definitions and expectations of motherhood—key factors in society's denial of the existence of this kind of abuse the stigmatization that survivors must endure if they reveal their experiences to others psychological theory—developmental, object-relations, self-in-relation (relational), and attachment—and what they tell us about mother-daughter relationships common themes encountered in therapy with survivors—acute shame, helplessness, isolation, betrayal and grief, identity issues, impaired sexual development, difficulty coping, and parenting concerns—and how to address them ways in which survivors attempt to regulate their internal emotional states strategies for helping a survivor to take charge of her life the ways in which survivors are likely to relate to their therapists and how survivors may expect therapists and other helping professionals to perceive them transferential-countertransferential dynamics between client and therapist and their effect on the process and outcomes of therapy—and nine strategies for minimizing countertransference There is no other resource like Mother-Daughter Incest: A Guide for Helping Professionals. Whether you are a therapist, social worker, medical or mental health professional or a student in any of those fields, this book will inform and educate you in ways that you'll be thankful for if you ever have a client who is a survivor of this kind of abuse.
