Format: Paperback
"Too Close For Comfort" has reassured me that I am not losing my mind or that I am an inadequate, sub-standard mother of my two 30 and under adult daughters. With humor and an eloquent perspective, the authors provide tremendous reassurance and guidelines that are ever so helpful. It is thought provoking and spot-on as it identifies what for me has been an emotionally difficult life transition. It is easy to read and the bibliography is a rich resource for further study.

At first I was skeptical about this book, but the farther I read, the more I get out of it. It's a little difficult to read, but if you use a highlighter (like I always do) and make notes in the margins, you can re-read those parts you don't quite get. Daughters need to know where they came from, their history with the rest of the women on earth. It seems that this generation of women don't care and "don't have time". Maybe I can slip it in in little pieces...or tie her to the clothes line!

This is the book I have been looking for. My relationship with my teenage daughter has gone through it's good and it's bad and this book helps me understand the bad a lot better. I especially appreciated the stories of other mothers and daughters and the experiences they share.

Real insight into the adult relationship with mother and daughters. Recommend it to any mother whose relationship with their own daughter is not on good solid footing. It may answer your question as to why.
