Ask Rene:
I’m Worried About Having A Girl


Dear Rene,

I’m soon to have a girl!  It’s very exciting except there is one thing that is nagging at me.  I have a wonderful son already.  He is the light and joy of my life.  We get along well and he and I have yet to have too many showdowns.  The problem with my new baby is that I don’t know how well I’m going to do with my daughter.  My mother and I never seemed to click; we are the example of the horror stories you hear about with mothers and daughters.  How do I get over this fear?  I want to bond with my daughter!
