Aging Parent Aging Children
The relationship you have with your aging parents may not be any different than it was decades ago. There are a lot of assumptions and expectation hidden in any relationship, especially when it come to aging, but more often between parents and their children, who may be clueless about what’s going to happen when their parents age.
Sorting all of this out sometimes takes the courage to ask difficult questions and to begin difficult discussions. Otherwise there is a burden of silence that will greatly influence the tapestry of the life of both parent and child.
Being a grown-up to an aging person is big work – it’s not for sissies! Sometimes one is thrown into the maelstrom of challenges they haven’t been privy to, even though a parent is having serious challenges that need attention.
