Note to Dr. Gail Saltz

[in reply to her appearance on NBC's Today Show this morning ] Dear Dr. Saltz, This morning on the Today show, in a segment on mother-daughter disagreements, you said "It's always better to talk." I remind you that verbal abusers take that advice every day, and use it as an excuse to say hurtful, tactless things. They use your advice as permission to hurt others. You need to think about your words and not dispense harmful advice. Do not feed the abusers.
