Summary
"The mother-daughter tie takes on unique characteristics as daughters enter midlife and mothers enter old age. Incorporating vivid descriptions by mothers and daughters about their relationships, author Karen L. Fingerman addresses both the rewards and the difficulties these women experience in maintaining their relationships into old age. Based on interviews with forty-eight mothers over the age of seventy and their adult daughters, Dr. Fingerman begins with an overview of this relationship, which, she points out, can be distinguished from other social ties by the strength of the mother-daughter bond. She then discusses the positive features of this bond and various theories about its social and psychological nature. This discussion is followed by an examination of problems encountered between mothers and daughters. The last section looks at reactions of mothers and daughters to tensions, conflicts, communication problems, and other difficulties."--Jacket
