Item description for Piensas salir vestida asi? / You re Wearing That?: Understanding Mothers and Daughters in Conversation by Deborah Tannen...

New York Times bestselling author takes on what is potentially the most fraught and passionate connection of women s lives: the mother-daughter relationship. Even though they speak the same language, they often misunderstand each other. With groundbreaking insights and deeply moving memories, Tannen untangles the knots daughters and mothers can get tied up in as they struggle to find the right balance between closeness and independence.
Description In Spanish: Por qu las hijas se quejan de que sus madres siempre las critican, y las madres se sienten heridas porque sus hijas las dejan de lado? Por qu madres e hijas discuten constantemente acerca de la gran trada -la forma de peinarse, la forma de vestirse y el peso-, mientras estn pidiendo a gritos que se las acepte y comprenda tal cual son? Y por qu cada una busca en la otra un reflejo de s misma? Deborah Tannen responde a stas y a muchas otras preguntas, analizando por qu un comentario que resultara totalmente inofensivo pronunciado por cualquier otra persona, puede provocar una autntica explosin si proviene de tu propia madre o de tu propia hija. A travs de su libro, examina todos los aspectos de esta compleja dinmica desde la reflexin sobre los malos sentimientos que pueden perseguir a una mujer durante toda su vida, hasta el papel que las nuevas tecnologas, como el correo electrnico y los mensajes instantneos, estn jugando en la comunicacin entre madres e hijas.
