Overview

What if teenage daughters could see their mothers as a great ally as they grew up and became independent? What if mothers could create safety for a teen daughter's experience of herself, consciously guiding her to be who she was born to be? Sil and Eliza Reynolds are leading a revolution, smashing conventional wisdom on mothers and teenage daughters. With Motheringand Daughtering, they offer two breakthrough guides in one.

For moms, Sil addresses the central task of stopping the cycle of separation and anxiety that plagues so many, drawing on her clinical expertise to nurture the skills of listening, boundary setting, "mirroring," and more.

For daughters, Eliza shares empowering advice to teens looking to keep it real with Mom while also finding strength in their own intuition, friendships, and dreams.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"What I love most about this book is how honest and down-to-earth Sil and Eliza are about themselves and their relationship. Girls a nd their moms will find comfort and companionship from two people who have themselves struggled -- and who offer strategies and wisdom that will help all of us become more aware, authentic mothers and daughters."
-Rachel Simmons, Author of Odd Girl Out and The Curse of the Good Girl

"This book is a precious gem that I wish had been around for my daughters' adolescence. Sil and Eliza give a timeless gift to mothers and daughters to help them deepen their love and understanding of each other before, during, and after adolescence. Moms who dread the thought of raising their daughters in their teen years will value this lifesaver of practical wisdom. Daughters who are in the midst of figuring out who they are separate from their mothers will appreciate Eliza's advice on how to have a supportive relationship with their mothers without constant fighting. Even though my daughters are now wonderful women, I want to share this book with them and look forward to the conversations and new understandings that this book encourages."
-Nancy Gruver, Editor New Moon Girls Magazine

"What Sil and Eliza Reynolds teach mothers and their teenage daughters is profound,
essential and revolutionary."-Geneen Roth, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Women Food and God

"If these challenges between mother and daughter are a generational thing, Sil has surely broken the pattern with her own daughter."
-Jane Fonda, actor and author of My Life So Far

"Sil and Eliza Reynolds' work offers a huge opportunity for mothers and daughters who want to heal and honor soul in their relationship."-Marion Woodman, Jungian analyst and author of Addiction to Perfection

"Mother-daughter conflict during the teen years is neither inevitable nor healthy. There's another way. Read this book and learn how to keep your mother-daughter bond strong and healthy for a lifetime."-Christiane Northrup, MD, author of the New York Times bestseller Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

"In this powerful book, Eliza and Sil Reynolds offer mothers and daughters the only kind of wisdom really worth giving-a reminder that the big secret to a resilient bond is nothing less than love. They're voices intermingle authentically and eloquently, a model for us all of shared, intergenerational leadership and the power of courageous communication."-Courtney E. Martin, author of Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters and Do It Anyway

"What you hold in your hands is more than a book-it's a life-line to mothers and daughters who want to move through the teen years with a real, loving, and lasting relationship. Both Sil and Eliza believe that as girls grow away from childhood and toward adulthood, they actually want and need to stay close to their mothers; and that mothers also want and need closeness, even as they help their girls find their own voice and spread their wings. In this guidebook for a new kind of mother-daughter relationship, Sil and Eliza challenge the stereotype of the broken bond between mother and daughter. They provide inspiration and tools honed from their own experience, and from the hundreds of moms and girls they have helped in their workshops. If you are a mother or a daughter who wants to navigate the teen years side-by-side, please read this book."
-Elizabeth Lesser Cofounder, Omega Institute and author of Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow

"Sil and Eliza Reynolds are doing pioneering work in one of the trickiest passages known to humankind: the transition into adolescence on the mother-daughter journey."
-Elizabeth Lesser
Author of Broken Open
