Being an adult parent is the HARDEST job I have ever had and sometimes I think I really am bad at it. But I really do try. I love my girls and only want to save them from any heartache I can. I enjoyed it. I learned something, it made me laugh out loud and it made me cry....what more can you ask for in a book.

"When your daughter was born, you had a thousand hopes and dreams for her....including that one day you'd be best friends." Mother and Daughter Duet

As the mother of five girls, I hope to be able to say someday that they have grown into some of my closest friends, and I am so thankful to God that I can say that my oldest daughter, Becky, and I are the best of friends, and my other girls and I seem to be heading down this same joyous path!!
I have to say, that I learned how to build these relations

I was hesitant to read this when I saw the subtitle of Mother-Daughter Duet is "Getting to the Relationship You Want with Your Adult Daughter," but I realized as an adult daughter, it might be helpful in understanding my relationship with my mother. Written by real life mother-daughter duo Cheri Fuller and Ali Plum, this book offers nothing we don't already know, but it presents different ways of looking at situations.
