Having a mother is such the greatest gift a son or daughter have. Mothers are one of the strongest and the most patient beings that we have. One of the strongest bond is of the mother to a daughter. Not because she is strong and concern because they both are female. And a mother has greater knowledge and want what’s best for her daughter.
A strong relationship is a must for parents especially for mothers and daughters. As a mother, you should guide your children, but at the same time you need to adjust in their own pace too. Some guidelines should be fostered.
- Always stick to the present
Make your relationship be focused on the present. Most of the time one of the reasons why a mother and a daughter have mishaps and arguments is because sometimes moms are bringing up the daughter’s or mother’s past as a weapon to win the argument.
- Settle down fast
After this argument you need to settle the argument down. As much as possible don’t let your anger grow inside before the sunset. Converse with one another.
- Accept each other’s mistake
Another thing that you have to do. Nobody’s perfect. Explain why you are wrong in the first place. Tell it in an authoritative way. It depends on your way of discipline. Authoritative approach is the best approach for your daughter. High in responsiveness, high in demanding ness. It should always be balance especially if you admit that one of the corners are wrong.
- Be open
A mother should let the daughter feel that she should be the one that she cam trust especially with some issues. Relationship will always be a two-way exchange. It would only get worst if you bottle it all up. You have to make sure that you know what is happening, especially with your daughter. As a mother you should be the first one to know if there is something wrong with your daughter. Encourage her. Tell her in a good way that you can take everything even if it will hurt your feelings.
- Always confess your love
This is a no-brainer. You should always tell each other “I Love You.” Those 3 words is so powerful, especially with your daughter. We only live ones. As much as possible tell each other numerous times.
As fathers said, you have all your friends. You can look for many, but you only one mother and daughter. These are the things that you can never replace. Cherish them as long as they are still here.
