Overview

Ten years ago, SuEllen Hamkins, MD, and Renée Schultz, MA, created the Mother- Daughter Project with other women in their community, hoping to strengthen their bonds with their then seven-year-old girls. The group met regularly to speak frankly about such issues as friendships and aggression, puberty, body image, drugs, and sexuality. The results were amazing: confident, assertive teenage girls with strong self-images and close ties to their moms. Equally important, the mothers navigated their own concerns about adolescence with integrity and grace. This book details the success of the Project’s groundbreaking model, providing the reader with a road map for staying close with her own daughter through adolescence and beyond.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
"Just wait 'til she grows up and hates you"—Hamkins and Schultz, psychotherapists and mothers, dreaded the day when they might hear those words from their own daughters. In an effort to avoid that scene, keep their relationships close and loving, and create ongoing communication between mothers and daughters, they started a group of mothers and daughters in 1997. They conversed, supported one another, played a bit, and talked out problems. Eventually, this led to the creation of the Mother-Daughter Project in 2002—a model for sustaining loving mother/daughter relationships throughout the stormy years of adolescence and into adulthood. This book describes how the project got started, what it attempted to do, how it succeeded (and where it could be improved), and what to expect from daughters each year from ages seven to 12. The authors' approach is realistic, taking "supermom" off her pedestal, addressing big questions (sex, drugs) early, and offering moms support. The initial assumption is that mothers and daughters can have close, loving relationships at any age, a premise well supported by the project. An excellent approach for all public libraries.
