MOTHER DAUGHTER DUET(getting to the relationship you want with your adult daughter) by Cheri Fuller and Ali Plum

Here we have a view between mother and daughter on how to have the relationship we desire.We dream of being close and telling one another everything. We wonder what has happened to the relationship we had when they were young that we thought would never change. Sharing from their own experiences as mother and daughter, Cheri and Ali open their hearts and wisdom in teaching us to grow and move forward. Letting go can be one of the hardest times for a mother and for a daughter wanting her Independence, but still wanting mom to bail her out of unwise choices can be a struggle for her too. This book helps set us on common ground. It helps us to see the other side, one that we struggle with. When we put on new glasses, a new vision can set us free of the past and help us move on to a future together that we have always desired. One of my favorite parts is this: "Practically speaking, here's what letting go looks like; To let go doesn't mean we stop caring. To let go isn't to enable but allow your daughter to learn from natural consequences. To let go means to admit powerlessness and realize the outcome isn't in my hands. To let is not to fix but to be supportive. To let go isn't to protect your daughter from reality, but allow her to face it. To let go is not to nag, scold, or argue but discover your own shortcomings and correct them." I found this book to be enriching to my life and thankful to have it placed in my hands when I am letting go. I also loved how the book was written by a mother and daughter. They not only shared from their hearts, but they do so with an honesty that is needed and will set you on the right path.
This book was a gift from Multnomah WaterBrook Press for its review.
