Forging a Strong Mother: Daughter Bond: Beyond Manipulation and Control by Leslie Vernick
About: Forging a Strong Mother-Daughter Bond.
Moms want to be close to their daughters. Daughters (for the most part) want a good relationship with their moms. But when that relationship is strained by one person's attempt to control and manipulate, closeness is replaced by hurt, disappointment, anger, and fear.
Leslie Vernick shares two stories of moms and daughters who learned how to move beyond the cycle of manipulation and control and give and share love honestly and without fear. By revealing how Christ calls and empowers us to love, she offers hope and practical help in breaking these destructive patterns of relating.
