In contrast to a thread about adult children’s Attitude to their mum’s health, I am wondering how much a mum should get involved in an adult daughter’s health.
There is a fine line to be drawn between being too involved, too intrusive, or appearing not to care.
A friend of mine has just gone back to work after taking theee months off to support her daughter.
But I am not sure that my daughter would want me to get that involved in her life. She is having various tests for a health condition. I try to tread a middle course, being ready to listen if she wants to talk, without trying to be too nosy. I hope she does not think I am not supportive enough.
I suppose it must depend how much help is needed, but I would not want to tread on her husband’s toes.
Silent treatment - son
Caught in the act - neighbours
How to say it - 'no'
