I originally published this article on Alamo City Moms Blog, where I am a monthly contributor, but I have provided an excerpt below. “Being Friends with Your Child(ren): Yea or Nay.” Chawanna Chambers, Alamo City Moms Blog, October 21, 2018.
Very recently I came across a Facebook post about mothers and their daughters that struck me. The author was a mother sharing that she didn’t like that some mothers tell their daughters, “I’m not your friend.” She went on to explain why she would be her daughter’s friend, which included being her “example of sisterhood, safe space, confidant, protection….”
It brought several thoughts to the surface, so I shared the post with some commentary that aligned.
