Fighting between moms and daughters is a very common scenario in most households. It is a bug that never leaves our homes. It happens between young daughters and their mothers to the very old ones. It piqued my curiosity and I decided to research on some of the causes. This is what I found; prepare your taste buds lovely people:

  • Hormonal Imbalances

We females have hormonal imbalances every single month, and they can get overwhelming at times. This gets insane especially if you live with your mother and both of you tend to have awful mood swings. This will cause incessant fighting at home.

  • Similarities and Differences in Personalities

This is a matter of genetics. If you take after her and you have so many similarities, you will find yourself clashing once in a while. This will also occur when both of you have extreme differences.

  • Too Much Talk

Talking is one characteristic that females are considered to lead in. This is an adhesive that mends or breaks relationships. When a daughter and a mother stay together, they would easily get into arguments due to their frequency in verbalizing thoughts.

  • So Much Scrutiny

This is the same extent of scrutiny that you would look into yourself with. We might at times confuse it for criticism and thus get insecure and start a fight over this.

  • Inconsistency in the Behaviour of Growing Girls

Many mothers have described their daughters’ character as Jekyll and Hyde. At one moment, they can be very annoying wanting to go to a party; next moment they are busy helping out with house chores. This can cause a lot of unwanted brawls.

What other reasons do you think make daughters and mothers fight so much?

Lots of love,
