Like mother like daughter, that’s a phrase that’s used when the personality or behaviors of the mother are found to be similar to those of the daughter. A lot of people assume that one’s daughter is just like their mother, and a lot of the times that is true, in some aspects. In other aspects, mothers and daughters can be complete opposites.
