When mothers are willing to take a compassionate and honest look at their relationship with their own mothers, it creates awareness, around dysfunctional patterns that may have been passed down. Without that awareness, women will often parent "in resistance" to the way they themselves were mothered ("I will never treat my daughter the way my mother treated me," or "I'm doing the opposite of what my mother did"), and this can have unintended consequences. Being willing to look within, understand, honor ourselves and our experiences is one of the most powerful things we can do. Modeling that process for our daughters is critical to raising them to be powerful girls.
