I have reached my breaking point with my clients daughter. I have yet to hear her say one civil word to her mother. I try to intervene by getting Ruth involved in something, or get her a piece of fruit, ect. But here lately the daughter has been talking to me the same way. I have finally just stopped speaking to her period, so that I can stay professional and not upset Ruth with any more confusion. I am not the type person to set back and let someone talk that way . Her husband came by today, and said there was obvious tension and it needed to get worked out. YA THINK!!!!, I kept my answer to the point. If she want to try and reach some sort of compromise,, then she is the one who needs to initiate the conversation. I put it right back on her. I am very ok not talking to her. So we will see what happens. I will not abandon this lady to God knows what. I am a grown woman and can handle anything thrown at me. The husband can be the one I communicate with. I want to part of the solution not part of the problem..
