What haven't you told your mom? Why it's tough talking about sensitive topics

When you hear the word “mother,” what comes to mind? Whatever your answer, those ideas are probably inspired by the relationship you had with your own mother. What you talked about, the good and bad memories you share, and what you’ve both left unsaid. Author Michele Filgate wanted to explore the things left unsaid in mother-child relationships. Her book of essays is called “What My Mother and I Don’t Talk About.”
