I tried to talk to my mom about her driving, and she became very angry. I tried to follow the tips provided by AAA, but it didn’t seem to help, so I decided to just let it go for the moment. Where do I go from here?
Ending the conversation when you did was a good decision. Since this topic can be so sensitive to bring up, getting through to a potentially unsafe driver can seem impossible. Once your mom has had a few days to calm down and think about what happened, consider continuing the conversation. When you do, suggest getting another opinion or a more rigorous assessment from a professional. This can redirect the focus on what problems truly exist, rather than just your opinion.
