Hi!


 


Is the usage of the word ‘between’ correct in this sentence?


 


But between me and my mother, we don’t have any secret.

Yes! Great job. You have used “between” correctly here. Although in this case, you would say that between you and your mother, you don’t have any secrets. Also, a more natural way to form this sentence might be, “There are no secrets between my mother and me.”
