How to Deal with an Intervening Parent
Have you ever felt that even though you're old enough to make your own decisions, your mom or dad are still behind your back dictating what you should and should not do?
I'm not a parent yet but I still have a mother who just loves intervening on everything I decide on both openly and subtly. And I'm not the only one who she's done it too. When she lived in my sister's home, she intervened with how my sister took care of her children and how the helper cleaned the house. She had something to say about everything. Sure, it's nice that we were still able seek advice from her but sometimes, it's just too much.
So how can we deal with an intervening parent? Sometimes, it's not as simple as to move out. What if that parent was living with you?
