I miss my Mother's support....
I never needed my mother to tell me what to do, but it was always a comfort that I could call "occasionally" to get her take on something. Now that she is in a mental decline, that is pretty much gone but it depends on the day.
Does anyone have any thoughts on how to talk to their parent (with issues) so the parent knows they were valued and are still valued?
Of course, it might just be lip service, but I think it does matter.
