Mother/Daughter Relationships -How to Cultivate the Most Important Relationship of Your Daughter's Life Part I
October 23, 2012
Hosted by Mary Waldon, LCSW
Join Mary this Tuesday for the inaugural broadcast of The Mary Waldon Show – this week, she'll be sitting down with Susan Shapiro Barash, author of Toxic Friends, You're Grounded Forever... But First Let's Go Shopping, and The Nine Phases of Marriage out now on St. Martin's Press. Mary and Susan will be exploring the challenges of the mother-daughter relationship in 2012: are moms still moms, or are they daughter's best friend? How can moms maintain parental authority while respecting their daughters' freedoms and decisions? This is the show for anyone who has experienced mother-daughter rivalry, wondered whether mother-daughter problems are really solved by buying a new iPad or a Louis Vuitton bag, or needed a homegrown solution to the “cool mom” trap.

The Mary Waldon Show is aimed at enriching North America's mental health conversation. Specifically, our show targets the interests and needs of young women, their parents, and a rapidly changing culture. How can our highly pressurized, social media-intense society raise strong, self-aware, self-empowered young women? How do we address the increase in depression, self-harm, eating disorders, and the accompanying decline in self-worth among our daughters? Our guests will include mental health professionals, authors, artists, academics, and successful women with a story to share. Join Mary Waldon, LCSW for an hour dedicated to helping young women discover who they are and all that they are capable of becoming.
