I recently read about an old saying..."Mothers raise their daughters but love their sons...What do you think about this? I have a son and and daughter and they are night and day. My son is very respectful and just comes over to hang out, calls to check on me and all. My daughter and I have a very difficult relationship, I love her but I don't like her ways...Care to comment? Take care...

If my parents don't like my ways, I think it will be ok if they respect my ways and talk with me about that frankly and friendly.

That's the old saying and mostly true. But as for my family, glad to say that I am the pet of the family. My parent love me, my brothers love me. Probably I am the eldest and the only girl in the family. Currently I am in states, my parent is very sad and happy for me to united with my husband who had been working over here. My brother had taught them to use the computer, skype and install webcam so we can chit chat with each other frequently. Talk about character, I have a very strong and stubborn character. My mom had been telling and taming me all this while. She meant good so I had never had hard feeling as I love her nagging since young. Now, kind of miss it. LOL. Just tell her that you love her. She will be very touch and for her ways.... tell her more tactfully if she is sensitive. Good Luck, mom and daughter is alway friends and that's my mom saying.

May be true because the people never say as it comes to their thouhgt untill they have expierenced it by themselves in every fact of life they live.

I have a daughter and a son. They have very different personalities. My daughter is very head strong. My son is very easy going. I am close with both of my children and love them both. But wow are they different! I remember when my daughter was living at home, she hated to take NO for an answer. My son, I could tell him NO and there is no agruement from him, he just accepts it and moves on.

I do understand what you are saying because I have two girls and one boy. I love my kids all the same but there is a special bond between a mom and her son. That is why they are called mama's boys right. I am very close to my daughter as well and we get along just fine it's just my son it is different. Then again with my daughter's they are spoiled by my husband. They truely are daddy's little girl.

Hi tsgirl01, I envy you to have a lovely daughter as I have with me only a son. I love both daughters of my brother and sister and manage to maintain a close relationship with them. In our society anachronistic thinking still prevail and make us think that when our daughters grown up and get marry and they will become members of different families. This thinking might make us raise our daughter and son in the different ways unconsciously but the gal might notice the differences between her and her brother. To attract our attention she might behave in some ways that we don’t like so as to arouse our attentions. So we must think clearly again and again whether we do really or truly treat our sons and daughters equally fair.
