Mother - daughter relationships are improving in many households during the Getty Images. Recent research has found that during COVID-19 lockdowns , many parent-child Experts believe these strengthened bonds could be the result of mothers and daughters having more time to connect.

The way families live together has inevitably changed a lot in times of lockdown. Many parents and their children had to move closer together - often in apartments that left little space for everyone. In the case of separated couples, on the other hand, the contacts were partially broken and the agreed visiting times of the children could no longer be adhered to.

But it was precisely the "moving closer" that also had positive effects, as a study from the USA has now revealed. The renowned cultural anthropologist Grant McCracken (69) asked 500 families about their coexistence during the lockdown, as reported by "healthline.com". His concern in advance: "In fact, I was nervous that I would only deal with families in crisis." But things turned out differently.

Some mother - daughter relationships can have a twisted bond right from the beginning, while some can take a difficult route when the daughter starts A healthy bond shapes the ability to have self-confidence. But an unhealthy relationship would make her doubt herself, resulting in low self-esteem.

Many families are moving closer together in the crisis

The McCracken talks showed that around half of the families are convinced that they will emerge even stronger from the Covid 19 crisis. Even more impressive: only five percent of those surveyed stated that they expected a permanent weakening.

According to McCracken, the biggest plus in the relationship was mothers and their daughters . Here even 60 percent were convinced that the lockdown had brought them closer together again.

During his interviews, says the researcher, he spoke to mothers who described their house as a kind of "train station" before the pandemic, where there was constant coming and going. The lockdown led the daughters back home and made the mother more visible to them again. "There was suddenly time so that mothers and their daughters could really talk and close the generation gap," says the researcher. Although cutting the cord is of course partly a natural and very sensible process, one can observe an all-round positive development here.

Building a positive parent child relationship is undoubtedly one of the biggest challenges. But in the end, everything boils down to the kind of relationship a parent shares with the child – the better the relationship , the better the upbringing can be.

This is how you can really listen to your child.

mother-daughter relationships benefit from less distraction

family therapist Alisha Sweyd shares this opinion on "healthline.com". She explains that the conversation, which is now taking place more frequently in families, is generally very important. "But there is more to mothers and daughters." Mothers now have "more time and energy to talk to their daughters ." Distractions from other things disappeared or were at least pushed into the background, which resulted in intensive contact. According to

Sweyd, communication between mothers and their daughters is a little different than with the boys in the family. With the "men" it is generally better because it is about concrete activities. For girls, on the other hand, other signals are often more important, for example eye contact. Distraction is not very beneficial for the intensity in the relationship.

Ireland is the first EU country to announce second corona lockdown

 Ireland is the first EU country to announce second corona lockdown In the fight against the second wave of the corona pandemic, Ireland is the first EU country to return to lockdown. From Wednesday on, a six-week curfew will apply in Ireland, as Prime Minister Michael Martin announced. The northern Italian region of Lombardy has meanwhile imposed a night curfew, and in Spain several areas with particularly high numbers of cases are being cordoned off. British researchers announced they wanted to target volunteers in the fight against the virus.

The response to the virus will cause more deaths and result in far more negative health effects than the virus itself. Even the World Health Organization (WHO) has changed its tune on lockdowns , once trumpeted as the only surefire way to beat the epidemic.

Sometimes it can be helpful for mothers to be more relaxed about things.

Crisis makes us more sensitive

And, according to Sweyd, there is another very important aspect that plays a major role: what connects a crisis. The therapist puts it: "Both mothers and daughters are going through a difficult time at the same time, and we have never prepared for that." However, this is exactly what helps mothers and daughters to "treat each other more sensitively" and "to build a bridge through the commonality of suffering". According to Sweyd, part of this closeness will be lost again if the situation changes, but some positive things should remain.
