The Difficult Mother-Daughter Relationship Journal

By

#1 New Release in Parent & Adult Child Relationships ─ Healing for Mothers and Daughters

A compassionate guide: Karen C.L. Anderson is a storyteller, feminist, and speaker who views the world through the lens of curiosity and fascination. As a mother-daughter relationship expert, she gently guides readers through revealing painful patterns in their relationships to finding ultimate healing. Her book isn’t a quick fix. Rather, she writes to help mothers and daughters heal and either reconcile or peacefully separate.

Tips and tools for healing: Anderson comes prepared in this book to offer readers practical advice for creating a healthier relationship. Her previous book, The Peaceful Daughter’s Guide to Separating from a Difficult Mother, was an international bestseller, and she offers new practical wisdom in this journal. From setting healthy boundaries to creating a new outlook, Anderson helps readers create peace in their troubled relationships.

You’re not alone in the struggle: Studies suggest that nearly 30% of women have been estranged from their mothers at some point. It can be difficult to talk about the strain of mother and daughter relationships because they are so often glorified in our society as one of the most precious bonds. If anything, however, that makes them more important to talk about.

Anderson’s book is ideal for mothers and daughters alike, whether they read it separately or together. Open it up and find:

  • Various prompts and practices for building a relationship around healthy interdependence rather than dysfunctional codependence
  • A way to transform things that create pain into a source of wisdom and creativity
  • An informative and intriguing self-care gift for women in the form of a healing journal

Readers of self-help books such as Mothers Who Can’t LoveAdult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents, and Difficult Mothers, Adult Daughters will find a wonderful source of help and healing in Anderson’s The Difficult Mother-Daughter Relationship Journal.
