For you — and possibly for your daughter — the notion of the mother-daughter relationship has been fantasized about. In your mind (thanks to the media and the tall tales of friends) you share everything. When she's confused, she always turns to you. When you suspect something may be amiss in her life, you sit her down for a calm, rational, and productive heart-to-heart. The reality is the mother-daughter relationship is one of the most trying to navigate. But, your work at building this relationship in a positive way is key to your daughter's successful voyage through adolescence.
