Adolescent daughters are rapidly growing from innocent children to functioning adults. Their mothers are also going through a change process. The purpose of this study was to describe this change process as it is informed by the process of communication between mothers and daughters concerning sexuality issues. Theoretical Framework/Methodology: Grounded Theory methodology was used with the intent of developing a substantive theory that explained this process. Subjects: Eight mother-daughter dyads were interviewed. Inclusion criteria were daughters (ages 14-16 years), living in the home of their biological mother, and both mother and daughter were willing to participate in separate, confidential interviews. Results: Analysis of the data was performed using the six strategies of grounded theory. This analysis revealed the basic social process of metamorphosis. Metamorphosis consisted of four maternal themes: Daughter’s Distancing, Mother Transforming, Building the Chrysalis, and Rebirth of a Relationship; and two daughter themes: Needing a Chrysalis and Transitioning Relationships. Conclusions: There were two main areas of significance. The first is the basic social process of metamorphosis which described the extreme and rapid changes going on within both the mother and the daughter during this time frame and the intertwining connectedness between the two of them. The second area lies in the notion that most mothers taught their daughters about the facts of sexuality rather than the emotional aspects. Implications for nursing include finding ways of helping the mother understand that not only is her daughter going through numerous changes, but she is also going through many changes. The mother must also learn the need to teach both factual and emotional information regarding sexuality. These understandings will assist the mother to facilitate her relationship and communication with her daughter. Finding creative ways to communicate will move the dyad toward this rebirth of their relationship.
