People Are In Love With The Way This Mother and Daughter Communicate

“I think kids should be very different from their parents, and be their own person.”

For so many daughters, the bond they share with their mother is unbreakable and the moments they share unforgettable. The Skin Deep, a YouTube channel dedicated to producing videos that explore human relationships and intimacy, recently took a look at this special mother-daughter relationship. In their latest video, mom, Hollie, and daughter, Luna, share a beautiful conversation about their bond.

In classic The Skin Deep fashion, Luna and Hollie read off cards to ask each other insightful questions. As they go through the exercise, the pair get a better understanding of one another, and a look into each other's deepest thoughts. It's a great display of communication between parent and child.

The video begins with 10-year-old Luna asking her mother "when she makes her laugh the most," and Hollie replies that their differences is what intrigues her. 

"Please don't take this the wrong way, but you are so serious about your academics, and it just tickles me pink because I wasn't as serious as you are [when I was your age]." Hollie continued, saying that this makes her laugh because she realizes her daughter is very different from her. "I think kids should be very different from their parents, and be their own person," Hollie affirmed to her daughter. 

"No matter what you do in life, you have to always look out to make sure you are safe. Because, I would never get over it, if I lost you, never. You're going to do a lot of things in life, but you should always protect your body," advised Hollie when her daughter asked what is one lesson she never wants her to forget. "It's extremely important because there are a lot of people who would really, really miss you."

The way Hollie respects her daughter and encourages her to be her own person is truly beautiful. When asked what her mother can do to be a better parent, Luna suggested going out more and having more adventures. At the same time, Luna also said she believes that before her mom became a mom,  she was more free, went more places, and had more time for herself, showing that Luna has an understanding of her mother as an individual.  

Viewers gushed over how wonderful these two connect with each other.

"I love the way they communicate with each other. It's so genuine, lovely and intelligent," said one YouTuber.

"This is so so sweet!! I wish more parents had the 'You should be different from your parents' mindset," said another. 

Their honest and open conversation inspired many to communicate with their loved ones in a way that will empower and uplift one another. 

"I think the hardest thing about raising you [and your sibling] is I may have my own issues, and problems, and challenges going on," Hollie said to  her daughter. "But you guys only have one childhood, so I have to make sure that this is about you. It's not about me, it's about you."
