  • Your Dad is right.
    You can offer your opinion, your support, but then you have to release the decision to them. I know it's hard, I had the same problem.
    Finally I realized that it's causing me too much emotional and physical pain. I laid in bed at night trying to think of solutions for them, I'd worry long after they stopped worrying about it.
    I had to let go of it and let people work their problems out themselves. To offer an opinion and then let it go. It's hard but worth it.
