Do you believe that daughters are closer to their fathers, and mothers closer to their sons? I do have my own philosophy on that topic,but it wouldn't be fair to try to influence your answers or sway you. LOLLL

I feel close to both my parents, but in different ways. There are lots of things I enjoy doing that I share with my mom, but I am more like my dad than my mom. My mom and brother are more alike. For my hubby's family I feel he is equally close to his mom and dad, but his sister is definitely closer to their mom.

I've never been close to my father for many reasons. But have always been very close to my mother. My husband and I try to have equal roles in our daughters lives and right now, they have the same relationship with each of us. I truly hope it stays that way.

I find it easier to be close to my Mom. We are so alike - however, that has also pushed us very far apart in the past. I feel like it's totally dependent on the situation that the family is in. I grew up with a father who I saw on weekends, and a step-father who married my Mom when I was four and has been here since. It's complicated between us all, and I don't connect as well with my Dads as I do with my Mom. However, I'm still very close with all three!

I'd think that it might change, too.

Sons typically start off closer to their fathers, then as they grow in to men from boys, they start to respect and love their mothers in a new light and may become closer to their mothers.

Daughters usually begin closer to their Moms, then become Daddy's Little Girl. Teenage girls are a riot, and usually don't get along with either parent, and then become friends with the Mother as they age and mature.

I was closer to my dad and i find my daughter is following in my footsteps. She is not a girly girl and likes hunting and fishing and anything outdoors, i used to be the same way. It is ok by me because i know she loves her mama :-)

I'm closer with my mom, and I think my brother is closer with my dad. But on the other hand, my husband is closer to his mom. So I guess there is no real hard or fast rule? The funny thing is, I'm closer to my mom but I'm more alike in mannerisms/habits to my dad. My mom always said the reason my dad and I used to piss each other off is because we're too similar. I don't doubt it. Although now that I've moved out and stuff, my dad and I do get along much better.

I am closer with my mother and my brother is closer with our father.
Our parents are divorced. I talk to my mother all the time. Only talk to
my dad once in a blue moon.
