Are You Turning Into Your Mother?

May 12, 1996

Mothers trying to raise daughters are invariably taken aback by realizing, "I sound like my mother." If this is true for you, turn to "In MotherWords" for some solace and offbeat humor.

Authors Marty Burns Wolfe, Foyne Mahaffey and Laura Manthey offer unconventional wisdom including how to buy daughter's first bra (when the clerk suggests a "training bra" don't you wonder "What are we training her breasts to do?") and how to get rid of those guys hanging around your daughter who spit and refer to their cars as "she."

The $11.95 paperback (Carroll & Graf) hits the bookstores today. --Happy Mother's Day.
