When is the best time for me to talk to my mom about stopping driving?
First, consider looking at the situation a bit differently. Think about how you will talk with your mom about keeping her driving for as long as safely possible and develop a plan together for how she will get around if driving is no longer a safe option. Ideally, you’d have this talk well before her safety as a driver comes into question. That way, the conversation is nonthreatening and, perhaps most importantly, your mom can play an active role in planning ahead.
