Let’s Get Real About Our Mothers!

By Val Boyko • September 21st, 2010

In American society Mothers seem to be either romanticized or demonized. This can make things confusing and difficult  for daughters!

The Mother we celebrate on Mothers Day is the nurturer, the warm and caring giver, our best supporter and champion, the wise adviser and trusted friend who always stands by us and loves us unconditionally.

The Mother we demonize is the critical degrader and with holder of love who causes pain.

In reality, most mothers are simply women – like us – with human flaws and fears. They are fallible, fearful and sometimes difficult to love.

As Victoria Secunda writes in her book When You and Your Mother Can’t Be Friends:

“People who have good mommies chorus the fact; people who don’t often keep it a secret.”

Our blog and forum are here to allow women to give voice to their experiences with their mothers – the good, the bad and the daunting. Together we can support each other and come to realize…

We are not alone… and we can help each other!

Are you ready to get real and face what is happening in your mother relationship?

How do you want your relationship to be different – in a realistic way?
