AGING PARENTS AND ADULT CHILDREN: CAN WE TALK?
As we age, it seems that we encounter role reversals with our adult children. Prompted by concerns, interest in our welfare, as well as their uncertainties about becoming caretakers, they may miss considering our own interests. Conversely, in our difficulty encountering changes, we are unable to hear them, which sometimes keep us from getting useful perspectives.
An honest conversation with our adult children may result in a better relationship and effective planning for the future.
- Why is dialogue important?
- How do you approach this conversation?
- How do you arrive at a meeting of the minds?
