How Mothers and Daughters Can Band Together, Beat the Odds, and Thrive Through Adolescenceby SuEllen Hamkins, Renee Schultz
There is no comment more troubling to the mother of a young girl than she loves you now, but just wait til shes a teenager. Ten years ago, SuEllen Hamkins and Renee Schultz, psychotherapy professionals with a combined forty years experience and both mothers of then seven-year-old daughters, created The Mother-Daughter Project with several other women in their community, with the hope of disproving this damaging assumption. With their young daughters, the group met regularly to speak frankly about such issues as girls friendships (and aggression), puberty, the medias influence on their self-image and esteem, drugs, and sexuality.
As their daughters matured, the mothers marveled at the strength and confidence with which the girls thrived through adolescence. The Project had succeeded in creating a haven from the many perils of teen culture. Equally important, it helped the mothers navigate their own fears and concerns about adolescence with integrity and grace.
At once simple and revolutionary, this book details the success of the Mother-Daughter Projects groundbreaking model, providing the reader with a road map for strengthening her bond with her own daughter, and providing strategies for staying close through adolescence and beyond.

"The initial assumption is that mothers and daughters can have close, loving relationships at any age, a premise well supported by the project. An excellent approach for all public libraries." - Library Journal.
