How Good Is Your Mother-Daughter Relationship?

Denise McGregor uses her book, Mama Drama: Making Peace with the One Woman Who Can Push Your Buttons, Make Your Cry, and Drive You Crazy, as the platform to launch her description of a specific syndrome. Mama drama, she writes, is "the ongoing conflict with your mother that never seems to go away and is often perpetuated from generation to generation."

McGregor asserts that women may be unaware that they are afflicted by this syndrome. To test whether your relationship is affected, take the following quiz. Answer "Yes" or "No" to each question.

Question 1 of 6

1. My mother has the ability to quickly and frequently make me feel guilty.
