Mother’s Day is around the corner and I wanted to give you a few tips for those of us who may not get along with our mothers very well.

Embrace what’s positive.

Instead of focusing on the bad, take your attention to what she does right!

Respect your differences.

Even though you may not agree with everything she says/does/believes, it’s OK. You have to learn to respect her thoughts and opinions.

Share your real self.

Strengthen your relationship by opening up new lines of communication between you and your mother.

Get to know her.

Get to know what it was like for your mother to grow up and how she was as a person back in the day.

Do something new.

Do something with your mother the two of you have never done.

Set boundaries.

Learn how to set some boundaries with your mother and respect each others privacy.
