I love my mother

  • Anna Kaminsky

    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.
