Most Women Don't Appreciate Their Mothers Until Age 23

Young teenage girls go through so much while growing up. And sometimes teenage daughters just can't see eye-to-eye with their mothers, resulting in many arguments over the teen years. However, things look up once daughters reach age 23.

A recent study conducted by Lil-Lets found that, each year, the average teenage girl has 183 arguments with her mother, slams 164 doors, cries 123 times over a boy, has 257 fights with siblings and 127 fights with friends.

The study also found that tidiness, talking back and dating were the most common causes of arguments between a mother and daughter.

By the time a woman reaches the age of 23, she begins to appreciate everything her mother has done for her, according to the study's findings.

"The relationship between mom and daughter can be testing during the teenage years, but it's clear that when a woman reaches her early twenties she appreciates her mom more than ever," says Mary Young from Lil-Lets. 

Even with all the arguments, 40 percent of female teens said they still had heart-to-hearts with their mothers, which they believed were crucial in getting through those tough times. 

Once those teenagers grow out of their angst, and age closer to the 23 year mark, 75 percent said they were grateful for the way they were raised, even if they failed to realize at the time.
