In our book, Mother/Daughter Duets, we examine a range of concerns in the relationships between mature daughters and their mothers growing old. We ourselves are such a mother/daughter team. We use our own relationship, along with many others who have contributed their own experiences to our book to shine a spotlight on the dynamics of the adult mother/daughter interactions, highlighting the changes that occur during maturation.

This could be a rejection of her habits, values, opinions, or lifestyle choices. This also possibly includes the way that you perceive how she mis-handled her marriage or love relationship.
With Mother's Day approaching, we are reminded to honor our own mothers and all the women in our lives who are mothers. But, what about you? Whether you are a mother or not, do you honor, nurture and nourish yourself? In other words, are you a good mom to you?
