Summary

Before a woman is anything else, she is a daughter. Her relationship with her mother anchors every other relationship in her life. Yet as an adult she may still blame her mother, try to change her, or fail to speak out about issues that matter. Harriet Lerner on Mothers and Daughters is a personal conversation for every woman who seeks to better understand the mystery of the mother-daughter bond. Dr. Lerner illustrates why our mothers inevitably disappoint us, and why it is so hard to stay connected - and stay ourselves - when differences arise. With specific skills and guidelines for changing the patterns that keep us stuck, Harriet Lerner on Mothers and Daughters represents this esteemed psychologist's most complete work on the central relationship in the emotional lives of women.

Good but short

The content was good but way too short. I was shocked it ended so soon. I had been enjoying the book and was eager to listen to more when suddenly it was over.

interesting

This short book summarizes the importance of differentiation in a mother-daughter relationship. It explains why being able to accept differences in others begings with accepting the differences between mother and daughter and maintaining a dialogue.

That was some much needed perspective

I'll come back to this lecture again and again. She offers some profound and relieving perspective that I'll want to hear a few times over to take in more fully.

I liked this book. It was short and sweet. Dr. Lerner gives some great examples and stories to gain a deeper perspective of the mother/daughter relationship.
