What does it take to be a good daughter?

February 10, 2012 4:17am CST
I keep on asking myself if theres any set qualities that will determine you as a good daughter? And if theres so, then what would that be? I was strongly been bothered by this issue as I haven't heard from my mom since she knew about my second pregnancy. I don't even know if she despised me or what? Theres so much question that's been pathetically bothering my thoughts.

i feel there is no scale or any set qualities to be a good daughter. You don't need a set of rules to love someone or to be loved. If your conscience is clear and you have not hurt people intentionally then sometimes even if you have done something bad unintentionally, people around you understand and forgive you. And Mother is the last person on earth who can say i don't like my child or children. you are part of her flesh and blood. She knows you best. if you have not heard from her equals to she too has not heard from you either. Its not that you have tried reaching her and she has avoided you. So try to call her and try and clear any misunderstandings between you because you can tell her everything and anything and she can listen, understand and pardon to you for everything.

Every mother wishes her daughter to be the best and therefore I see that the son is the good of trying to gain satisfaction satisfy her mother until satisfy her God also .. Paradise under the feet of mothers .. Try as much as you can satisfy your mother is not angry, and do what you will see that the way she treat you changed for the better .. As for the second pregnancy I do not know the details so I can not answer

I think that the relationship between a Mother and a Daughter is one of the most important relationships that you can have in your life. Your Mother is always there for you, and has been since the moment you were born, so I think that it is really important that you should try to reciprocate that effort as soon as you're able to do so. Now, I am 21, and I am trying to help my Mother out by buying her house so that she has a lot of spare money each month that she would previously have had to spend on her mortgage, so this should help. But you should make sure that she knows that you will always be there for her, just like she has always been there for you in the past.

You do not have to do anything to be accepted by your mother or to be seen as the best daughter. Just be yourself, do what any other person would do for his or her mum and if she decide to ignore or not accept you, then you do not have to worry about it, since you have done your part.

You'd been a good daughter if you let your parents feel how much you love them. You follow their advises. You don't quarrel with them or anybody in the family. You respect them and you don't do something that would upset them. You're a good daughter if you also love and fear God.
