    It can certainly be challenging navigating the relationship between a mother and daughter, especially when they are two very different people. You might have a controlling or overbearing mother paired with a sensitive and compliant daughter — or the opposite. Both ends of the spectrum are ripe for conflict. Sometimes even when a parent is just trying to help, she may also come across as meddling or trying to tell the daughter what to do. Definitely a relationship that requires care to keep things good.

Chew on This If You Chew on Gum
When that new flavor of gum hits the grocery store, its tempting. Watermelon sour, triple berry fruit...sounds like dessert in a stick, but what is the skinny on gum chewing? As a mom, I didn't let my kids chew gum, probably because I am not a gum chewer, so we never had gum in the house. But I k
