Our mother who is 80 was trying to get the cat out from behind a sofa and I was concerned for her safety that I applied my palm to her shoulder to which she replied 'don't push me around!'. I regretted our mother felt like this and this is the first time this occurred since I took on caring since last year. I feel guilty that I had done something really bad and I apologized to our mother. My siblings talk to each other whether I am caring properly for our mother and I felt so unsupported that morning when I asked for help. Otherwise me and our mother gave a good trust and I try to resolve sibling conflict with some success. I want to avoid using any kind of restraint that might be labelled abusive.
