Very insightful book about mother and daughter relationships.

My daughter and I have a wonderful, close relationship. However, we occasionally misunderstand each other and donÃ¢ÂÂt always get along perfectly (weÃ¢ÂÂre too much alike for our own good :)). I desire to be a better mom and have a deeper & stronger relationship with her. This book helps prepare me for the near future when she steps into adulthood. I donÃ¢ÂÂt agree with everything in the book but I still appreciate lots of valuable insights shared by both Cheri Fuller (the mother) and Ali Plum (the daughter). I will keep their warnings in mind; hopefully and prayerfully, by GodÃ¢ÂÂs graceÃ¢ÂÂ¦I wonÃ¢ÂÂt make the same mistakes that many moms have made. The authors share about the main ingredients in developing a stronger relationship between mother and daughter which include unconditional love, understanding, prayer, grace, space, prayer, kindness, patience, prayer, acceptance, respect, encouragement, and prayer. You probably get the point that prayer is so crucial. God is still in the business of relationship restoration. I really like the discussion questions in the back of the book for each chapter. These are very good for mothers and daughters to discuss with each other and learn to understand each other better; they are good for mothers to ponder alone, too.

For mothers with teenage daughters
I bought this book hoping it would help me open dialogue with my adult daughter. I found several chapters very pertinent, but most of the book is directed to mothers of daughters who are approaching adulthood, not already there. The book is easy to read, and the discussion questions at the end are wonderful. I gave the book to one of my daughters who has teenage daughters, and I'm sure it will be useful to her for years to come.
