What advice can I give to this lady, coming up to seventy, whose only daughter, whom she has been very indulgent with, in fact almost stripping her mother of her money and now after a couple of years of reduced contact, has said she wants nothing more to do with her. The grandchildren of various ages still want to see her but at the last minute visits were cancelled. What stores have been told? I said go and see her and ask why she has done this, she wasn't answering texts or phone calls, see if it can be resolved, how I wish I hadn't. The daughter screamed a lot of abuse on the doorstep, saying what a horrible person and bad person she was and she was dead to her, she is blocking her and said she would make sure her grandchildren did too. I fear for this persons future, hardly any money and alone, I can't sleep as I feel I gave her wrong advice. Surely nothing warrants this treatment. How can you treat your own mother this way and just dump her? It's abuse. This lady has not been the conventional stay at home mom, appeared to have a lot of self confidence but her daughter always came first, I know that. She would have given her her last penny, the girl would have taken it. I am frightened she might harm herself as she says there is nothing to live for. I can't interfere, she added me for advice and I got it wrong.
