SuEllen Hamkins, MD, and Renée Schultz, MA, originally created the Mother-Daughter Project with other women in their community in the hopes of strengthening their bonds with their then seven-year-old girls.

I know everyone's lives are different so doing the whole project may not be possible, but I really loved their insight and experience with their own daughters. I think their view of feminism is understandable, but mine is more 'old fashion' in this society because I find a lot more value in being a stay at home mom and not finding it 'less than' other avenues. I think doing that is looked down upon and I want my daughters to know it's okay to be happy doing that if they choose. I also have 5 daughters and don't know quite how to incorporate this program into our lives where most of these women had 1 or 2 daughters. Despite these differences, I think the information is invaluable and could easily be adjusted to everyone's circumstances with some planning. The biggest thing I got out of the book is that Girls and Teens DO WANT a relationship with their Mom. It's so important and I'm so grateful to see the information and experience that backs that up. Thank you, thank you!

We've started a Mother-Daughter Circle, inspired by this book. 5 Mothers, 6 daughters, for the next 10 years. The kids love it, the mothers love it, and we are looking forward to seeing our relationships evolve as we enter the teenage years, armed with this thoughtful, compelling book, it's exercises and resources. This book is changing how we parent, and its impact on the teenage years for mother and daughter is going to be significantly improved. Buy this book, read it, and then form your own group. It's not hard! And you'll be amazed at how much it feeds your soul, and your daughter's.

Great book. We created our own group to help our daughters before they get too old to listen.

A fantastic book for every parent with an open mind. It immediately inspired me to go out and talk to other Moms - with very encouraging results. This is a very healthy approach to raise girls in our society. I am so grateful that this book fell into my hands!

I think "The Mother-Daughter Project" is a terrific book. I have recommended it to parents that I see in my practice as a child psychiatrist, to friends who have daughters, and to anyone whom I meet who has daughters! I believe this book is a rich tool, from the perspective of understanding and, most beneficially, from the perspective of practice: on how to foster strong, nurturing, and enjoyable bonds between mothers and daughters and between mothers and mothers. The common experiences and challenges that different generations of females encounter in our society, and life itself, as well as the resources needed to meet those challenges, are richly explored in this book through the discussion of the evolution of the mother-daughter group.
With detail and humor, the authors share with the reader the journey of this group of mothers and daughters over 10 years, as they start meeting monthly when the daughters are seven years old and continue up to the time of college. We learn about the very rich array of activities that these very thoughtful and intentional mothers used to educate their daughters about the tasks they will encounter in each coming stage in their development. Age specific challenges to mothers and daughters, together and separately, are covered in an overview level and in the very rich detailed activities the mothers and daughters used to prepare for, practice, and develop the skills and abilities to deal with all that is involved in moving from protected childhood into adulthood. This book is a wonderful resource to all parents-whether or not they are in such groups.

The Mother-Daughter Project is a most practical, theoretical, and hopeful guide to dealing with our predator culture -- a culture that expects and even thrives upon mothers and daughters becoming separate during the daughter's adolescence. My mother-daughter group, just begun with help from the book contains 11 & 12 year old girls and their mothers and is a multi-cultural, multi-ethnic group who have various economic backgrounds. We did one of the exercises ("our perfect day") from the book and it elevated us to a surprising new level, created an introduction to community within the group and highlighted some marvelous differences and similarities between the generations. My own 11-year-old daughter said, "I noticed that everyone in our group had something going for mangoes AND liked climbing...also that we all wanted to get up really early so that we could really live large during the day!"

This is an incredible book for anyone interested in women, girls, psychology, spirituality and community. The extremely readable information about our culture's approach to girls and women and the valuable stories about the mother-daughter pairs in the authors' M-D Project make "The Mother-Daughter Project: How Mother and Daughters Can Band Together, Beat the Odds, and Thrive Through Adolescence" truly a book to read, re-read and USE.

I bought this book earlier today and am over halfway through it. I am the mother of two daughters, age 9 & 12. While I wish I had this book five years ago, it doesn't feel like it's too late. A great resource for years to come, with positive self, daughter and relationship building ideas.
