You're Wearing THAT?

Tannen's book IS NOT for me. No, I didn't read it because it was Mother's Day; I read it because, (sigh), its on the NY Times Bestsellers List.

If you have a mother then read this. The book is about how words have more power and impact between mothers and daughters than in other relationships. We tend to take personally what our mothers, or daughters, say to us and think of our conversations as mostly criticism.

I suppose that if I had a relationship with my mother I may be able to relate to many of the stories. I was hoping there would be suggestions to re-build your relationship with your mother, but this was lacking.

Kim's grade: B nice writing, but cannot relate
