What if teenage daughters could see their mothers as a great ally as they grew up and became independent? What if mothers could create safety for a teen daughter's experience of herself, consciously guiding her to be who she was born to be? Sil and Eliza Reynolds are leading a revolution, smashing conventional wisdom on mothers and teenage daughters. With Mothering and Daughtering, they offer two breakthrough guides in one.
For moms, Sil addresses the central task of stopping the cycle of separation and anxiety that plagues so many, drawing on her clinical expertise to nurture the skills of listening, boundary setting, "mirroring," and more.
For daughters, Eliza shares empowering advice to teens looking to keep it real with Mom while also finding strength in their own intuition, friendships, and dreams.
For more books for parents about the mother/daughter relationship, including the highly recommended Just Between Us: A No-Stress, No-Rules Journal for Girls and Their Moms, visit our Mother / Daughter section.
"Moms who dread the thought of raising their daughters in their teen years will value this lifesaver of practical wisdom. Daughters who are in the midst of figuring out who they are separate from their mothers will appreciate Eliza’s advice on how to have a supportive relationship with their mothers without constant fighting." -- Nancy Gruver, Editor, New Moon Girls Magazine
