Mother and daughter relationships are complex because the daughter looks to her mother as a role model of what a woman is. As she grows up and sees other woman who live their lives differently, she chooses between imitating her mother or other significant influences in her life. As an adolescent she may come to look down on her mother and think that other woman are much better. Of course she is not a fully grown woman so she does not understand the challenges and choices that her mother faces. It is only when she herself becomes a woman that she can fully appreciate her mother.

That says it all. Totally agree with it. It's a heavy burden as an adult with healthy self-esteem. A whole new way to live. It's tough.

I agree with you. When I read that it really hit home for me. It will be tough and even though we won't be perfect, I think we can all set good examples and be good role models for our daughters! At least I'm going to give it my best shot and I will hope for the best.  :)
