Letters to My Daughter
About the Book
This book of letters written to my daughter emerges from a deep desire to share with other mothers my personal experiences of raising a daughter. This communication technique of writing letters transitioned from handwritten letters to type-written letters to computer-generated letters to e-mails and text messages. The effect of communicating your deepest thoughts without interruption or uncontrolled emotion while having a captive audience is invaluable. A parent’s journey can be bittersweet, but also extremely rewarding. When a child is born, so is a parent. They simultaneously learn together and grow together. The discipline of parenting fits in the category of on-the-job training, and it never hurts to compare notes. So I’m sharing my thoughts, my challenges, my triumphs, and my words of wisdom conveyed to my daughter during her formative years and the map of my journey as a parent. Enjoy the ride!
