Thanks, so much! My own daughters (I have three, as well as a son), have had three very different reactions to my struggles. The eldest rebelled entirely for a period of years, getting into a number of predicaments, and has balanced out some in the last couple of years--but is a very strong young woman (though she is entirely non-traditional); my middle daughter has always been the "good girl"--a people-pleaser which has gotten her into several jams, as well (she is very traditional to the point of looking down her nose at her older sister); my youngest daughter is really well-adjusted--respectful, ambitious, clear goals (traditional in her family values, nontraditional in her relationship and career intentions). Certainly some of the difference is inherent to their natures, though my youngest was my 30-something baby (I was 20 and 22 when the older girls were born) and I was a lot calmer and had learned a lot more about myself by the time I had her.

I find your posts thoughtful, intelligent and dead on in many respects. I am a baby boomer woman (born 1958) and have a daughter (born 1980). A lot of the trouble I experienced was because of the "traditional" norms I was expected to follow (as in my mother's world - which was often the June Cleaver role.) I was not successful. I feel differently now and and am pretty happy with life, however, there is so much more to do. My daughter, I think, has been able to see where I've been and where I came from and has a pretty good grasp on things (i.e., being a woman today). I'll be reading more from you.
