Chris Britz Prof Nunez ENC1102 6 February 2003 Mother Daughter Relationships What is the mother-daughter relationship I have no direct information on this because I am not a daughter I do however have two sisters and their relationship with my mother is very different when compared to the characters in the short stories Whos Irish and New York Day Women Relationships between mothers and daughters take different forms for different people The motherdaughter relationship amongst different people can be the same but also very different There are many similarities in the relationships between the mothers and daughters in the short stories Whos Irish and New York Day Women One similarity is that there is a foundation of love between the generations For example in Whos Irish the mother seems to explain how she feels about her when she was a baby A daughter I have a beautiful daughter I took care of her when she could not hold her head up The narrator seems to have much love for her daughter and she tries to make her life better by taking care of her child In New York Day Women the daughter Suzette follows her mother around New York City on her lunch break and comments on what she is doing In this short story it isnt hard to see that this daughter loves her mother very much Suzette also appears to know what her mother does in her everyday life and with this information she embraces her mother with kindness and love For instance she knows that her mother shouldnt eat anything with sodium because she has to be careful with her heart this day woman Another similarity would be that the cultures of both mothers are held strongly with them but not as strongly with their daughters For example in Whos Irish the mother says You spank her shell stop which in Chinese culture it is acceptable to spank your child
