How your mother's emotional legacy impacts your life
Date:4/23/2008

o explores how our emotional connections in adult relationships are based on the style of our mothers. Poulter defines the five styles of mothering as:

  • The Perfectionist Mother- whose family must look perfect in every way

  • The Unpredictable Mother- whose ups and downs can create lifelong anxiety and depression in her son or daughter

  • The Me First Mother- whose children come second or last

  • The Best Friend Mother- whos now in vogue but can wreak havoc

  • The Complete Mother- who provides guidance and shows compassion to her child

THE MOTHER FACTOR makes clear that no matter what type of mother we have and most mothers are a combination of the aboveher style of mothering affects our lives in ways that should not be ignored. Through an investigation of the strengths, insights, and liabilities that derive from each mothering style, Poulter seeks to help us transcend the mysterious anger, anxiety, depression, and shame that we feel and achieve the kind of relationships we deserve. Dr. Poulter demonstrates how the internalized rulebook we inherit from our mothers is a very powerful force, as well. These unspoken rules govern our work, relationships, emotions, separation, and independence. Unless we become aware of the rules that guide our behavior, thoughts, and beliefs, we wont have the ability to make our own choices.

Dani Levine, PhD, Clinical Psychologist and President of The S.T.E.P. Group (School Placement and Educational Placement), says THE MOTHER FACTOR brilliantly captured the reality that although we are products of our mothers legacy, we are not prisoners. Dr. Poulter not only offers insight, but also provides the tools to escape the fate of falling into maladaptive patterns. I would recommend this book to the masses, as we are all in relationships today that have been influenced by our mothers.
