I DO understand, where he is at, even though he is convinced that I can't possibly understand.... It is because parents and children are too close, and it matters not at all how old the children are. If they are adult children, the situation becomes more difficult. I have observed this myself too, in my relationship with my own mother. I lived with her until I married at age 25, and the relationship was the most difficult at that time. Yet even when I was already a mother with my own children, I felt she treated me as a child.
