If you’re a child frustrated with caring for your parents I empathize with your situation. Parents can be frustrating, exasperating, difficult, and stubborn or just a pain in the rear. So can children. You were once a child who frustrated, exasperated and possibly nearly caused your parents to question what they were thinking when they decided they wanted a child. It’s thinking about this than can provide the extra ounce of compassion needed to continue to help your parents. Sure there are times when you just want to walk away — and times when this is necessary for a brief period of time if your parents stubbornly refuse to accept help from someone other than yourself. Know there are times when it’s important to access the help of others if only to gain a different perspective to get you through the next day, week or month.
