The presence of other family members did not relate to the primacy daughters gave their mothers.
Yet, daughters desired to please their mothers. They felt hurt by their mother's criticism and derived pleasure from their mother's praise, even in midlife. The emotional valence of ties between mothers and daughters does not appear to diminish even after daughters are well established as adults in their own rights. The types of issues that these four women discussed were common across mother/daughter pairs. Mothers and daughters derive pleasure from their shared investment in the family. The daughter's children, partner, siblings, and father are central players in the mother/daughter tie.
