These mothers and daughters have to grow better relationships with each other. They need to know what are each other's limits and weaknesses. They where extremely mean to each other in the novel and this is not how a mother and daughter relationship should be. A mother should not force a child to do what they don't want to do and a daughter should be prod when her mother is so grateful for her.
