Goodbye mother, hello woman: reweaving the daughter mother relationship
New Harbinger Publications, Sep 1, 1995 - Family & Relationships - 198 pages
The challenge of every woman's life, assert the authors, is to say goodbye to mothers as "mommy" and create a new woman-to-woman relationship. Only then is she free to grieve for whatever nurturing she did not receive from her mother, nurture herself, and claim her own power and place in the world. This book blends personal accounts with exercises through which readers are encouraged to confront their own mother-daughter experiences.
