In Mothering Ourselves, Dr. Bassoff examines all the ways a mother can fail her daughter--from outright abuse to overprotection, from stiffling closeness to distant indifference--outlines the damage each can cause, and shows daughters how to find common ground with their mothers and sow seeds of sympathy and reconciliation.
