Mangaluru: The mother and daughter bond influences our lives in ways we may not even realize. It is said that the relationship between a woman and her mother is so powerful, it affects everything from her health and self-esteem to all her other relationships. The mother-daughter relationship is the most powerful bond in the world, for better or for worse. It sets the stage for all other relationships. No other childhood experience is as compelling as a young girl’s relationship with her mother. Each of us takes in at a cellular level how our mother feels about being female, what she believes about her body, how she takes care of her health, and what she believes is possible in life.”
Anita and Amanda Frank (I st Place Winner – 2015)
How a woman sees herself, how she is in her adult relationships with partners, and how she mothers her own children, is profoundly influenced by her relationship with her own mother. For most, the mother-daughter relationship is ultimately fulfilling. Despite conflicts and complicated emotions, 80 to 90 per cent of women at midlife reported a good relationship with their mother. There is value in the mother-daughter tie because the two parties care for one another and share a strong investment in the family as a whole.
Mother-daughter relationships are complex and diverse. Some mothers and daughters are best friends. Others talk once a week. Some see each other weekly; others live in different states or countries. Some spar regularly. Some avoid conflict. Others talk through everything. And undoubtedly, there’s a hint of all these things in most relationships. Mother’s Day will be approaching soon, 8 May 2016, and the most unique part of Mother’s Day celebrations is that it can be celebrated in extraordinarily simple ways.

Offering a customized card, flower baskets, a cute gift hamper or something for keepsakes’ on this day takes on a special meaning for all moms.

But here at Mangalorean.com we came up with an unique idea of holding a ‘Mother/Daughter Look-Alike Contest 2016’, so that mothers and daughters could share their resemblance between them.
