I have noticed a somewhat common thread in some issues here. Many of us have crazy moms, and perhaps dads that to most other people seemed very nice and easy going.
My dad who died last year was that way. I suppose if he had not been easy going, the marriage would not have lasted. Most people could not have put up with my mom's craziness, but my dad did not want to upset the apple cart so with the goal of preserving the family tried to overlook it.
But in the end, he was not doing any of us any favors. By his looking the other way and not confronting my crazy mom about her unacceptable behavior, he enabled her to also drive us kids crazy. And now that he, who at least was our buffer is gone, her craziness is unleashed full bore on us.
Just noted a lot of people may have experienced this. I guess I don't really have a question.
