• What color would you like that Prada bag in? (material indulgence)
• Do you need to be eating that? (fixations on food and weight)
• Of course you can drink when you're home with me (loose boundaries and rules)
• I know she's your friend but… (underestimating female friendships)
• I'll just say you aren't feeling well (making excuses)
• And much more.

It's the worst book ever. Its so not like what I thought it would be like. It was a waste of someones time to write this book.
I have been a fan of Susan Barash and 'Toxic Friends' is one of the best books I have come across. I have really enjoyed reading her most recent book, "You're grounded forever...But first let's go Shopping." The title speaks for itself and the book does great justice to it. In her book, well renowned author Susan Barash talks about 'real' mothers and daughters. She has interviewed a diverse group of women who are mothers of girls of several ages. We hear these mothers speak about the issues they face raising teenage daughters. All mothers can relate to this in depth analysis of what goes into raising girls, from the women's perspective. I thoroughly enjoyed it, I'm sure you will too. From things that mothers do to please their daughters and the many challenges they face-this book has it all. Hats Off!
