Publisher's Summary

No one has influenced the person you are today like your mother. The way she handled your needs as a child has shaped your worldview, your relationships, your marriage, your career, your self-image - your life. Our Mothers, Ourselves can help you identify areas that need reshaping to make positive choices for personal change and to establish a mature relationship with Mom today.

Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend steer you down a path of discovery and growth beyond the effects of six common mom types:

    The Phantom Mom
  • The China Doll Mom
  • The Controlling Mom
  • The Trophy Mom
  • The Still-the-Boss Mom
  • The American Express Mom
You'll learn how your mom affected you as a child and may still be affecting you today. And you'll find a realistic and empowering approach to filling your unmet mothering needs in healthy, life-changing ways through other people.

Our Mothers, Ourselves is a biblical route to wholeness and growth, to deeper and more satisfying bonds with your family, friends, and spouse - and to a new, healthier way of relating to your mother today.

More for mothers to read, not children

This book is more for mothers with children than daughters or children. It gives more parental advice versus insight for the children.

Good information!

This would be useful to nearly anyone who has/had a mom. I plan to share it.
