MANILA, March 10, 2016 – While nature dictates that mothers and daughters share a unique bond, a nun says there are even more benefits when these two become real friends.
“There is an advantage when mothers and daughters are friends,” said Sr. Venus Marie Pegar of the St. Francis Xavier community in San Pedro, Laguna in an interview on Tuesday, International Women’s Day.
Daughters are comfortable in discussing private concerns with their moms if they bond like friends, she explained.
Pegar added, mothers, especially, should show openness to their daughters so that they would be unguarded and free in their interactions with them.
According to the vocation directress, parents should inspire their daughters to become aware of their safety at all times.
Parents, mothers especially, are responsible in reminding their daughters to become aware of their safety wherever they may be, she said.
Young women should be watchful of things and people around them, Pegar said, to protect their life and liberty.
Pegar observed some of today’s young women suffer abuse and violence as a result of a lack in caution and prudence. (Oliver Samson / CBCP News)
