Why do they always want my advice, then don´t heed it?

Listen before you talk

Building and keeping a good relationship with our families is not always easy. We've raised our families, and now they have theirs. One thing I've learned is when our family comes to us for advice, they usually really don't want it! They are looking for comfort and a calm ear from us. Keeping up a good relationship is obtained by keeping out of 'their business'. Relationships are built on loving, even when we are not 'liking'. Setting our own boundries is important; not stepping over is vital! Listen and think before getting 'involved'.
