Nielsen recommends that mothers and fathers encourage their daughter to spend close to equal time with both parents and give her messages such as "Both your dad and I made mistakes in our marriage, but we are good parents." Based on more than two decades of research on fathers and daughters, Linda Nielsen notes that many mothers lean too heavily on their daughters for advice and caretaking after divorce and this can turn the daughter against her father. Nielsen that I noted in my own research, is that daughters are more upset about and negatively impacted by parental conflict than sons post-divorce.Why exactly is the mother-daughter relationship so complicated? Peggy Drexler notes that many mothers like to feel connected to their daughters and, in many cases, their daughters' friends.She writes, "At a time when there is so much societal pressure to stay young, this helps keep us feeling youthful.It also helps us feel appreciated long after our children stop "needing" us to survive. Drexler makes the point that many mothers seek validation through their daughters.In my opinion, this need could be exaggerated after divorce when the mother's coping skills might be strained.In fact, the mother-daughter best friend idea doesn't leave room for the more traditional role of mom and could even lead to a competitive edge between them.
