Cherishing Our Daughters offers hope and encouragement to parents searching for a way to guide their daughters toward self-confidence and emotional, physical, and psychological well-being. Written by a practicing psychologist and respected author in the field, this important, illuminating book brings together profound psychoanalytical insight and the basic how-tos of loving, nurturing, and mentoring to help us become better mothers and fathers to our daughters and, in turn, to help our daughters gain the skills to live happily and effectively.Evelyn Bassoff examines a broad spectrum of parent-daughter relationships and shows how these relationships shape a girl's future relationship to the world around her. She addresses all categories of parents, from mothers and fathers to stepparents, from single, adoptive, and divorced parents to gay and lesbian couples. She also probes the crucial bonds between young girls and their grandparents, as well as the other significant adults in their lives. Revealing case studies and interviews with dozens of daughters and their parents pinpoint when and how successful parenting occurs, and how we can bring it into all our lives.
