Posted By:

A popular novelist once quoted, "No mother and daughter ever live apart, no matter what the distance between them".

Most of us can agree that the above quote is a fact indeed, as the bond between a mother and daughter is truly a special one and it lasts forever!

While this holds true for any mother and child, regardless of the child's gender, mothers and daughters still tend to share a closer bond, as they are both women and have a better understanding of each other.

A mother is her daughter's very first role model. A little girl tends to learn most of the things she knows by imitating her mother, which even has been proven by many psychologists.

Be it the dressing sense, the conversing style, etc, a young girl looks up to her mother and learns various behavioural patterns from her mother.

A mother is a daughter's first best friend, and a daughter always comes to her mother for advice, no matter how old she turns!

So, as a mother, there are a few important things you need to teach your daughter, have a look at them, here!
