I think it's important to make one-on-one time for you and your daughter together as it would be in any relationship, to make sure that she understands the lines of communication are open and clear. And you can't ever really forget that you are essentially the embodiment, you are the role model for her of what it means to be a woman in this culture. A parent's job is to protect and a daughter's job is to explore. And so right there you have sort of an impasse, you have a clash of agendas. What's most important is to really spend the time and check in and make sure that she knows that you're open to hearing her point of views and that you'd like to listen to her.
