Praise for Marcia Duncan’s Work:
“At last, here’s something useful to address modern communication issues between mothers and daughters.”
—Sharon Tomas, MA, former Chief, Children’s Mental Health Team Hawaii
“Ms. Duncan’s Sentimental Journal is a most creative, thoughtful, empathetic, sensitive, skillful, gentle, caring approach to improving the relationship between a mother and her daughter. It is simple yet structured enough in its design to make it both safe and non-threatening. It deals with positives and strengths rather than problems and negatives.”
—Dr. Richard L. Moon, Child Psychiatrist, Madison, Wisconsin
“Sentimental Journal by Marcia Duncan is a well-thought-out publication that challenges, encourages, and counsels a parent to develop practical knowledge and skills in communication with her daughter. Sentimental Journal provides a vehicle for closer communication between mother and daughter. Those who will accept the challenge and take seriously the gentle direction from this book will find the unfolding of a deep, loving, healthy, and lasting relationship. The payoff is priceless.”
—Dely Sasaki, RN Trainer on Adolescent Health Issues (retired) and Co-chair of Kauai Community Children’s Council, Kauai, Hawaii
