What do you do when your mother fights any and every suggestion you have?
My big question is what do you do when you mother fights any and every suggestion that you have. It is like she is a active senior trapped in an aging body. She wants only to do the things that she could do 10-15 years ago and is not willing to settle for anything less. So bottom line, she watches TV and becomes more and more bitter. Then when I suggest an activity that might be more "age appropriate" her only answer is NO.
I feel like I am going crazy, I am angry more and more, and now I am beginning to lose patience and lash out verbally.
How do I cope and how do I get her to be a little more flexible.
