      I think a bond between mother and daughter goes a little deeper than what most people think.  A mother has a special connection with her child, boy or girl.  Those are maternal instincts.  If something is wrong, Mom can sense it.  Mom may not know WHAT is wrong, just that something is wrong.  With a daughter specifically, I think instincts are intensified, because Mom was once a little girl, once a teenage girl, and she knows that her daughter will have to go through some of the same things that she went through growing up (the little princess phase, puberty, boy trouble), because that is female nature.  I think because of that alone, mothers identify more easily with daughters.  Eventually, daughter will realize that everything mother has said over the years is true, and will appreciate her for it in a way that a son could not.  Not that mothers and sons can't bond, and not that sons won't appreciate mothers, it's that daughters appreciate mothers in a different way that a male can't understand.  That being said, I also think that mothers and sons bond in a way that daughters can't understand.

    They can be positively awful requiring years of self-analysis, therapy or whatever. I know I have lived with them.

    Some of those mother-daughter teams are pathetic; wearing the same type of clothes, the mother fooling herself that everyone thinks they're sisters ...

    i am beginning to think that both with my mum and my daughter, expectations are too high....  I am constantly disappointed.  Grandchildren now that is different.....

    I had a so so relationship with my mom, there were a few really bad moments that made me leave the family nest as early as it was legally possible. Now, with my own daughters it is different, I am trying to make better parenting choices than my mom did. I think we may have a good relationship, such that they don't need to run away from me or the family, a relationship where they can come back to me if they are in trouble. I value honesty and truth, am teaching them this and respect my daughters for who they are although it is sometimes hard to accept that they are different than I. I raise them using love and respect and that's what I am getting from them

    Thanks for posting this topic. I miss my mother so much. Because, I live in different city with her now. When I was young, I was so stubborn. it made her falling tears a lot. I am feel so sorry now. Miss too much.

    The relationship that I have with my mother is organic, beautiful, grounding, and sacred. She is more than just my mother, she is my best friend.  It is wonderful the way our relationship has evolved over the years. 

    Now I too have a daughter and hope that our relationship strengthens and evolves as we continue our journey…we’ve got a ways to go as she is only eleven.

    I think mother daughter relationship is unexpressed. Though daughters are seemed to be fond of father most but the way a mom can understand her daughter ,it can't be done by anyone else.But sometimes the mom also have to understand her daughters feelings like the way the daughter thinks.Its needed.
