With Mothers Who Can't Love: A Healing Guide for Daughters, Susan Forward, Ph.D., author of the smash #1 bestseller Toxic Parents, offers a powerful look at the devastating impact unloving mothers have on their daughters—and provides clear, effective techniques for overcoming that painful legacy. In more than 35 years as a therapist, Forward has worked with large numbers of women struggling to escape the emotional damage inflicted by the women who raised them. Subjected to years of criticism, competition, role-reversal, smothering control, emotional neglect and abuse, these women are plagued by anxiety and depression, relationship problems, lack of confidence and difficulties with trust. They doubt their worth, and even their ability to love. Forward examines the Narcissistic Mother, the Competitive Mother, the Overly Enmeshed mother, the Control Freak, Mothers who need Mothering, and mothers who abuse or fail to protect their daughters from abuse. Filled with compelling case histories, Mothers Who Can’t Love outlines the self-help techniques Forward has developed to transform the lives of her clients, showing women how to overcome the pain of childhood and how to act in their own best interests. Warm and compassionate, Mothers Who Can’t Love offers daughters the emotional support and tools they need to heal themselves and rebuild their confidence and self-respect.

This book proceeds from a single and very simple observation: throughout history, and up to the present, women have received a clear message that we are not supposed to prioritize ourselves. Indeed, the whole question of "self" is a problem for women – and a problem that issues from a wide range of locations, including, in some cases, feminism itself. When women espouse discourses of self-interest, self-regard, and selfishness, they become illegible. This is complicated by the commodification of the self in the recent Western mode of economic and political organization known as "neoliberalism," which encourages a focus on self-fashioning that may not be identical with self-regard or self-interest. Drawing on figures from French, US, and UK contexts, including Rachilde, Ayn Rand, Margaret Thatcher, and Lionel Shriver, and examining discourses from psychiatry, media, and feminism with the aim of reading against the grain of multiple orthodoxies, this book asks how revisiting the words and works of selfish women of modernity can assist us in understanding our fraught individual and collective identities as women in contemporary culture. And can women with politics that are contrary to the interests of the collective teach us anything about the value of rethinking the role of the individual? This book is an essential read for those with interests in cultural theory, feminist theory, and gender politics.

Was your mother too busy, too tired, or too checked-out to provide you with the nurturing you needed as a child? Men and women who were “undermothered” as children often struggle with intimate relationships, in part because of their unmet need for maternal care. The Emotionally Absent Mother will help you understand what was missing from your childhood, how this relates to your mother’s own history, and how you can fill the “mother gap” by: Examining the past with compassion for yourself and your mother Finding the child inside of you and learning to mother yourself Opening to the archetype of the Good Mother Allowing friends and loved ones to provide support, guidance, and other elements of good mothering that you missed Through reflections, exercises, and clear explanations, psychotherapist Jasmin Lee Cori helps adult sons and daughters heal the wounds left by mothers who failed to provide the essential ingredients that every child needs. She traces perceived personal “defects” back to mothering deficits, relieving self-blame. And, by teaching today’s undermothered adults to cultivate the mothering they missed, she helps them secure a happier future—for themselves and their children.

If you want to supply yourself after a narcissistic emotional abuse and understand how being the daughter or son of a narcissistic mother affect your feelings and your life, then keep reading... Growing up, there were many times I remember getting off the school bus and slowly walking toward my house. Unlike other children, I was in no hurry to get home. I knew that as soon as I walked through that door, I would either be ignored by my mother or have her yell at me. I was never sure which mood she would be in - it felt like I was always walking on eggshells around the house - which often worsened my anxiety, especially as I walked home. I remember feeling like my stomach was all knotted up, the pain so excruciating, I could barely walk. I remember praying as soon as I held the doorknob in my hand that God to give me the strength to handle whatever comes my way. Sometimes, I would even pray that my mother would be gone for the evening and wouldn't come home until I was sound asleep in my bed. For the longest time, I thought I was alone. I didn't believe that anyone else in the world had a mother who didn't care to go to their child's school programs, conferences, sports games or any other events. I remember the first time I met someone who stated the words, "Me too. I know how you feel," when I described what it was like growing up with my narcissistic mother. I remember the shock I felt. I remember feeling like as though a warm, heavy blanket had been placed over me. For the first time in my life I felt like I was no longer alone. There is someone else who understands what it was like to grow up in a home devoid of love and affection. The truth is, there are millions of children who understand what it is like to grow up with a narcissistic mother. There are millions of us who understand what it's like for our mother to put herself above anything else, to refuse to see us score a basket during a basketball game because it disturbs her alone time. There are others who understand what it's like to not hear the words "I love you" or "I am proud of you" from their mother. There are millions of people who understand how much abuse you deal with; how much you wish that you could have someone else's mother. You are not alone. The key points you will learn in this book are: What is Narcissistic Personality Disorder? How this disorder affects the relationship between you and your mother Characteristics of a narcissistic mother Strategies and tips to help you deal with your mother Strategies and tips to help you heal from narcissistic abuse How to reset your mindset, so you can think more positively If your narcissistic mother can change and how to navigate her healing journey Strategies and tips to help you build a stronger relationship with your mother It doesn't matter if you are a mother struggling with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, a son or daughter who was raised by a narcissistic mother.

Have you heard the words, “I never dared to treat my parents the way kids do today”? If you are a baby boomer or the parent of a tween, teen, or adult child, not only have you heard those words, you may have uttered them yourself. If, in this new age of child–parent relations, you’ve ever felt like a helpless puppy or kitten inside a box marked “Free to Good Home,”—if, in spite of all your love and the care with which you embraced parenting, your child has grown into an entitled and thoughtless power broker in your relationship—read on. Author Kay Taylor has studied sociology, parenting, blended families and personal growth for years; in this bold, groundbreaking book she explores the changes in our culture that she believes have given birth to what she describes as the E-generation—a generation of teens and young adults that feel so empowered and entitled that they often clash with their parents, creating a palpable power struggle within the family. This often leaves good parents alone, depressed, and completely befuddled as to what they did wrong. Free Mother to Good Home comes from the heart and experiences of an everyday parent in the trenches. Taylor offers a mother’s perspective, as well as a remedy for parental blues, helping parents know what they can do to get their houses and their lives back in order.
