She craves attention and expects to be entertained and included in everything I do. e husband and I have do so and our grown jobs, children. They are married with families. Everyone is busy with their lives. Mother is included, of full-tim- My course, in all family functions, where all she does is complain about how lonely she is. She loves gossip and knows everybody's business. She is very critical of the grandchildren, so of course they avoid her whenever possible. My husband tends her yard and does her repairs, and I take her to doctor appointments, but we cannot be a marriage of three. Mom is very manipulative with her guilt trips, which I try to ignore. But she really is a pain in the neck. I love my mother and will always tend to her, but I don't like her. What should I do? Manipulated Daughter Dear Daughter: It is diffi- cult to retrain a mother. Get her involved in some volunteer work. She needs to feel needed. You will be glad you did. And so will she. ld S 11 Elder Ramsay Beecher Stephen and Marilyn Adams of N. 300 West.
