Good story filled with sentiments and scenarios that many will relate to. The role reversal is one in which many experience. It's almost like a natural progression...however, it's important to realize that "the older parent" still needs to feel free and not relegated to a "childish role." It's a struggle sometimes, but consideration should be given in abundance to the "aging parent."

Well done! I loved it, and the engaging and hopeful ending...with the "daughter" finally asking for help with fixing something.

God bless~

It is very true many will face a similar situation. No one wants to give up their independence. Still, it is hard for the caregiver too. How much fishbowl is necessary? You expressed the man's feelings well. Good for you.

Thanks for giving me a look into how 'helpful suggestions' may be stifling...
