Restoring The Struggles In A Mother – Daughter Relationship

February 2, 2021

Is there a strain in your mother – daughter relationship?

The relationship between mothers and daughters is a tricky one. It can be a healthy bond and still have some underlying expectations, misunderstandings and hurts.

Dr. Helen understands how a strained relationship can leave scars. She was raised by a mother who battled alcoholism, anger and anxiety. For years she thought something was wrong with her. It was after becoming a Doctor of Counseling Psychology that Helen understood that she did the best she could with what she knew about her mother.

Helping other women who had been hurt by their mother-daughter relationship as well as raising her own daughter, Blythe, differently became a desire of her heart.

Through the effort needed to guard their own relationship, they centered it around respecting, listening and then talking.

“When we honor each other, it helps win us back together.ย  We have learned to share our words and not shove them.” Blythe Daniel

In today’s episode Blythe Daniel and her mother Dr. Helen McIntosh talk about the hope behind their book:
