Mothers are a key female figure in the life of most girls. Let us also refer to mothers also beyond the biological but also add the women who had a key role to play in our life as daughters; it could have been our grand mother, aunt, teacher, step - mother or just a woman who we met along the way. 

So how do mothers influence their daughters?



There are so many things that mothers impart on their daughters but a valid question remains; Should mothers teach daughters to enjoy sex? and with a recent study claiming mothers have a big influence over daughters views of sexuality. It is time for Mothers to guide their daughters on sexuality by talking about it because;


However, most mothers are afraid of the responsibility of discussing sexual health and safety with their daughters and so keep quiet about it. 

This leads to a great drift in the mother-daughter relationship when the daughter keeps her sexuality a secret, consequently the mother starts to play guessing games because she did not open a platform to discuss mutually on the daughters sexuality at the right time but rather handed the job to another adult like an aunt or even worse, left it to the media or to the daughters common sense if not to her equally misinformed peer group.
