You can't. You must play the role of PARENT. Traditional roles of the female and the male parents don't apply these days, so one must be everything!! I have found that the best way to do that is to have a great support system of other family members, friends, and community resources. I couldn't have made it without my good friends and I wasn't even a YOUNG mother (I adopted when I was 36). Make sure your child has good adult role models aside from you and don't parade men in and out of your child's life. Take care of yourself so that you can remain mentally and physically healthy in order to take care of your child.

What do you do if your parents are divorced and you do not talk to your mom and in school we are having a Mother's Day play and you cannot skip it?

Even though you and your mother are not talking (you never gave a reason) most mothers would be very hurt if they were not thought of on Mother's Day. You have two options; discuss this with your father and see what he suggests. If it is impossible that your mother cannot attend the Mother's Day play you could ask a step-mother (if you have one) or an aunt or your grandmother to attend in place of your mother. Never feel lesser of a person because your mother may not be able to make it to the play or the fact you do not talk to each other.

Is it true that 'to a mother a daughter is a daughter for life'?

Yes, to normal mothers that saying is true. However, sometimes there may be indifferences between mother and daughter, but this doesn't mean the mother doesn't love her daughter. Then, as the mother ages there are illness' that come into play with such diseases such as Alzheimer's or possibly strokes can cause the mother to be the hardest on her daughter, but the mother doesn't know any different. Mothers are no more perfect than their daughters and if a daughter is smart she'll look on her mother as a woman first (with feelings) and a mother second.
