0 Reviews
As the mother of two preteen daughters and as a family therapist, Dr. Lynda Madison became acutely aware that mothers and daughters needed a format to discuss the most basic issues of growing up. Lynda's language is simple and explanatory; her exercises serve as starters for detailed discussions on family, morality, friends, and physical and emotional changes. The hoped-for benefit is a stronger mother-daughter bond with a foundation for future discussions on more adult topics.
