Advice: How to transition strained mother-daughter relationships into adult friendships

Advice: How to transition strained mother-daughter relationships into adult friendships | Mother Daughter Ties | Scoop.it
It's not always easy for mothers and daughters to bond if their history together has been riddled with struggle. We spoke with a life coach and a family therapist to get expert advice on how mothers and daughters can move beyond past hurts and establish a healthy relationship as adults.
Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

For creating a strong bond between mother and daughter, communication is a necessity. It creates a different view point or perception for the daughter or mother which is important since everyone has different perceptions on various topics.  Something that I find that is a simple way to open up and communicate is brought up in the article. It says to use direct language when conveying feelings. I think it's simple and to the point which makes it easier to convey thoughts and feelings. I like the fact that forgiveness is a large part of a mother-daughter relationship. I really like the line that states, "forgiveness means you accept they did the best they could with the tools they had." Nobody is perfect. In a mother-daughter relationship both the mother and daughter are learning about each other and themselves. It is a learning process so it can get difficult at times. But, the relationship can help each other grow as individuals.

Postpartum Depression Can Happen to Any Parent - The Atlantic

Postpartum Depression Can Happen to Any Parent
The Atlantic
But there's a difference between knowing and doing, and even parents who are prepared and eager to have a child can easily find themselves overwhelmed during the transition.
Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

This is an important article to note. Postpartum depression can happen to any parent regardless of their sexual orientation or if they live with the child or not. I think that this is important to note because if it isn't recognized and the right procedure is not taken, this can become a serious issue. And that is not good for the baby or the parent. A birth of a child is life changing. It can test relationships. A partner can feel unwanted or not getting enough attention from their partner when a baby is born. This is something normal but it is so taboo to talk about so no one talks about it. But it needs to be dealt with or depression will take its toll on the whole family. It's a rough transition, to say the least, of having a baby. But it can be helped if people do not have high unrealistic expectations.

Repairing the Mother-Daughter Relationship - FamilyEducation.com

Repairing the Mother-Daughter Relationship - FamilyEducation.com | Mother Daughter Ties | Scoop.it
Learn how changes in behavior can help repair a broken relationship between mother and daughter.
Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

In this article, it provides some tools and new guidelines to improve and repair mother-daughter relationships. I really like the guideline that states, "mothers and daughters cannot solve each other's problems. They can support, guide, and assist. However, each party owns her own problems." I think that many mothers or even daughters feel that they need to fix each other. But by being understanding and being there for each other, actually helps a great deal. The article also talks about that attitudes need to change in order to have a better relationship. Communicating is a huge key in a mother-daughter relationship. In the article it says that one should be open and not secretive. Changing the way one thinks also counts too. I think that these are all great on repairing a mother-daughter relationship. I like the fact that it even has a check list on what attitudes a mother needs to work on. I think that seeing it in black and white really makes it clear that a mother's attitude needs to change. She can finally see for herself what she needs to work on.

Parents to their kids: Do what I say ... not what I do with money - Mail Tribune

Parents to their kids: Do what I say ... not what I do with money - Mail Tribune | Mother Daughter Ties | Scoop.it
Parents to their kids: Do what I say ...
Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

This article is about how some parents deal with money and it is not how to teach children the right way to deal with money. I have heard many times about how parents say "Do as I say, not what I do." and this applies also to how parents deal with money. Some have even lied about their money or went to their children's piggy banks for money. I know that it is probably hard to talk about money to children but in this article, it says that talking to ones children about money is a must. I think it is a must because how does one expect a child to be responsible with their money? If they do not see their parents being responsible with money, I think that they will do the same and not be responsible as well. I think that the tips about getting a conversation about money going are really good. Just little by little introduce how money works and what it pays for. I think that a child can understand that money helps pay for things that one needs as well as what one wants. I also like how one of the tips is about saying 'no' to something to buy without explaining why one is saying 'no'. This will help the child understand more further when there is reasoning behind it.

Via callousseo3
Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

I like this article because it gives what mothers can do to show their daughters that they are there for them and can create special memories as well as a strong bond. I like the list of "special moments" that a mother and her little girl can have. I like the special moment of giving the little girl one on one time. I think this is important because mothers can be busy with everyday things and their daughters can feel left out or not even important to their mothers. But, when a mother makes time for being one on one with her daughter, that can make the daughter feel special and loved. I also love the fact of letting the daughter express herself. I feel that many girls feel that they have to be something because society tells them to be a certain way. I am glad that is included because it opens up doors for young girls that they can express and be whoever they want to be. This article really comes up with a good list of activities that a mother and daughter can do together to create a special bond.

Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

I liked this article because Tracey gave some good tips for being a mother. I think that her thoughts can help out a stressful mother who is having trouble dealing with her children. Tracey points out that children need a good role model. So when a mother takes care of herself (such as eating healthy) her children will take notice and start to follow suit. She said that prioritizing helps. I think that this is a good tip because a mother cannot do everything even though she would like to but it is not possible. So, by prioritizing one can get what needs to be done.

Mother-Daughter Relationships: How Close Is Too Close? | SmartFem

Mother-Daughter Relationships: How Close Is Too Close? | SmartFem | Mother Daughter Ties | Scoop.it
Mother-daughter relationships are a complex thing. For some girls, their mom is their best friend. For others, like me, that isn't quite the case.
Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

I think that this is an interesting article because not every daughter is going to have a good relationship with their mother. It is good to point out that one misses the fact of not having a good relationship with their mother and that is just apart of life. I am sure there are some women who are afraid to say that they don't have a good relationship with their mother so, in this article the author is saying that she does have a rough relationship is something that is good to point out. Some mother s and daughters are just have different opinions about the world and cannot come to a understanding and I think that is okay as long as the daughter has someone to turn to who she trusts (in this case, the author's father).

Toy company wants to turn princesses into engineers (Wired UK)

Toy company wants to turn princesses into engineers (Wired UK) | Mother Daughter Ties | Scoop.it
The toy industry -- like many industries -- is starting to realise the value of bringing more women into the fold
Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

This is another great article that shows that young girls can grow up to be whoever they want to be, even if it is seen as a male dominated career like engineers, as seen here.  This article also talks about how there are toys that are geared more towards young girls such as girly and pink and beauty products. That is just feeding into the stereotypes for girl toys and what girls should play with. I like that the toy industry is encourage young girls that they can be a princess but also build their castle. I like that they are turning away from the stereotypes and encouraging that girls can be whoever they want to be and that building can help them learn and develop vocabulary. I think that is great that it is a learning experience as well for young girls. They can learn while they play.

Her mom wants me to fix her. She doesn't yet understand that what needs fixing is their relationship.
Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

This article is interesting because it says that "separation from mom is part of the process. I think that is a good point because not every teenage daughter is going to be best friends with their mother nor do they need a mother who is a best friend. They need someone to guide them through their teenage years and to discipline them. They need someone who will be there for them but not all the time. They need to trust that their daughters will learn how to be responsible and make her own decisions. That is why they will be there when they need it and teach them how to become "functioning adults and solid citizens", but they cannot try to be their best friend and smother them. With the rules that their mothers give them will help the daughters make good rules for themselves.

On Halloween a parent pulls me aside and tells me how much she loves the fact that my daughter is dressed like a pirate.
Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

This is an excellent article. It just goes to show that young girls don't have to fit the mold and like pink and girly things. And it shows that mothers do not have to worry and freak out if their daughters  like boy stuff such as Star Wars. It could be just a phase, as seen in this article. But a girl should be able to be herself even if she doesn't like girly things at the moment or if ever. It just goes to show that young girls can be whatever they want to be and that they do not have to fit the mold and mothers should support and encourage the interests of their daughters.

The Mirror Speaks in the Mother-Daughter Connection

The Mirror Speaks in the Mother-Daughter Connection | Mother Daughter Ties | Scoop.it
If mother can’t love, can you still love her?
Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

This is an interesting article about narcissistic parents and their children. I thought it was interesting because children of narcissistic parents usually come off as they do not love their mother (or father). Because, in our society every little boy or girl is expected to love their mother or father no matter what and if they don't then it must of been something that the child has done. When, in this article, it states that the child actually does love their narcissistic parent. I wish this article went more deeper into what a relationship between a narcissistic mom and her daughter is actually like but the author does open it up to the public to tell what it is like. I saw this article as a topic starter, that it will get people talking.Also, this article does mention about mental illness. Can something else be wrong when a mother or father that cannot love their child? Could that be caused by a mental illness?

Becoming a mom changes your entire world, and sometimes it can be a little difficult remembering who you used to be.
Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

I think this is a good article because mothers do need time for themselves. They deserve a break every once in a while without dealing with everyday life and raising kids and to not be a "bad mom" when taking time for oneself. I like how the article includes trying to take away the guilt when a mother does take time for herself. The tip is to cut the time down on activities such as applying makeup or cooking a meal.  I do like the fact of asking friends to come over instead of having the mom go out. I think that puts a great deal less stress than figuring out where to meet or trying to find a babysitter. I also like how this article includes wardrobe. It talks about being comfortable and making a quick outfit and then dressing it up with accessories. Because, being a mother is very time consuming I think that this is a great asset.

Is the Mother-Wound Ruining Our Romantic Relationships?

Is the Mother-Wound Ruining Our Romantic Relationships? | Mother Daughter Ties | Scoop.it
“If a daughter internalizes her mother's unconscious beliefs (which is some subtle form of “I'm not good enough”) then she has her mother's approval but has in some way betrayed herself and her potential.
Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

Here's another interesting and important article. This is about how a mother's unconscious beliefs and the daughter internalizes and does not heal it things can get bad for the daughter's romantic relationships. If this is not come to terms with, this can ruin potential romantic relationships. It's about understanding each other, the mother and daughter, and communicating to the best of each other's ability (because it will get better with time and practice). When one comes to better understand oneself and love oneself, they can then create really good romantic relationships.

Single Mom Quick Tip Being Vulernable

Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

I think that this is a great short video that explains how vulnerability connects one to another person. I think that a parent being vulnerable with their child can connect them or make that connection stronger. I also think that when mothers tell their daughters stories about when the mother was younger, it can be a teaching moment for the daughter. The daughter can learn from the mother stories and apply them to her own life. Some stories entail vulnerability, so I think that this is important to include for a strong mother-daughter relationship. Then if the mother tells her daughter something vulnerable, the daughter will feel more open to speak her mind and show her vulnerable side as well. I think that this will open up a feeling of trust between mother and daughter.

It's great if you can cut down on plastic as much as possible, but be realistic. 4. Stop being so hard on yourself. Seriously.
Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

With family changing throughout the years, like having technology, a busy schedule. or more single parents, life can be a struggle. However, women who were mothers in the 80s have some good tips to help in this struggle. I really like the tip of letting kids be if they are content. There are probably some that do not let their kids be and are too afraid (for whatever reason) to just let them be. I also really like the one of stop being so hard on oneself while parenting. A parent cannot be perfect. That doesn't mean they are a bad parent because no one is perfect. All they can do is do the best that they can and that's okay. Another thing is to keep phones or other electronics out of sight so the parent can focus on the child. I think that this is a great idea because the child gets full on attention from the parent without any distractions from the electronic device. And finally when a parent stops obsessing over every little thing, this will help with the stress and the struggle. So what if the child gets a little dirt on his/her new clothes, one can always wash it later.

Why are young women's relationships with their mothers often so fraught? - Telegraph | Mother Daughter Ties | Scoop.it
As many of us spend more time with our parents this Easter weekend, Rebecca Holman asks why no one has the ability to rile you quite like your mother. But why do mums keep on being so nice?
Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

Mother-daughter relationships all have their ups and downs. But this is apart of life. There are several reasons some people might think that is true, perhaps its due to hormones or something else. I think that it is okay to have downs in a relationship with their mom. I think there has been a point in most teenage girls lives where they highly disliked their mom. Moms should not press to be close to their teen daughter. Both mother and daughter should just try their best and work out disagreements.

Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

There have been findings that show everything about stay-at-home mothers from to their race from if they are married or not. In the article, it says that women who stay at home for whatever reason (disabled or enrolled in school) should be celebrated because they are sacrificing for their kids. I think it also should be celebrated. Sometimes, stay-at-home mothers are given a bad reputation because some people think they are lazy or cannot get a job. People agree that children are better off when a parent stays at home to focus on the family. I think that if a child is looked after in his/hers early years, it is beneficial for both the parent and the child. The parent can help the child and teach the child as well, more often than being at work all day. Also, the child could have someone to rely on more, as well.

“I have had some kids say, 'I feel like I'm not important because mom's always on the phone or dad's on the computer,'” Sitter said.
Jessica Koelkebeck's insight:

I think that this a great article since today we live in a highly driven technological world. The article says that parents need to create a balance between technology and non technology time. In the article it says that children can feel left out or not as important to their parents since they are on their phone or computer all the time. Children need support and to feel that they are important, so parents should split up their time between spending time with them and technology. I love this idea because I know people can get lost in their electronics and do not look at the world around them. I love the idea of dividing up the time and looking at emails when the child doesn't need to be looked after.
