Why is a mother-and-daughter relationship meaningful?

A significant aspect of a woman's life is her relationship with her mother, as it shapes her growth, sense of self, emotional health, and future relationships. According to an expert, here are a few reasons why this relationship is essential for women.

While speaking to Briefly News, Penny Holburn expressed that children are more prone to impressions than adults. The psychologist and relationship expert said children are "like sponges" when absorbing what is happening around them.

"A daughter will observe her mother and from her learn how a woman behaves, what goals she sets, and generally what it is like to be a women," said Penny.

Penny expressed that the foundations laid in childhood are strong and can persist throughout life without a person knowing where one's beliefs and actions stem from.

"The mother-daughter relationship is so important for the daughter as it defines for her what it means to be a woman in society and how to be a woman. Other females can serve as role models for girl children. However, the mother has the greatest impact. If there is no mother, then a variety of other people may serve as role models. Their influence, however, is usually less strong than for a present mother," she added.

The relationship expert went on to say that having a mother who has good self-esteem, is capable of managing anxieties and has a high sense of self-worth can help a daughter feel safe and develop confidence as she grows older.

"Such a mother will also set boundaries and appropriate discipline for her daughter.
