  • I would listen to her, tell her that I support any decision she made, and NOT offer an opinion.

  • i think when it comes to a child as a parent we would always try to give the best opinion advice we can...if she is in a relationship that is not healthy and a divorce is the way out or whats best then i would tell her...if its a little mood swing argument that one knows will pass then i would as well let her know...parents are there to just guide in the best interest of our children NEVER to give a bad advise

  • I think it depends on your relationship because I would want my mothers advice and opinion but she's truely my best friend.

  • I'd let her know that I was there for her and she could tell me anything. But I'd only give advice if she asked for it directly. Mostly, I'd just listen and support her decisions.

  • Let her know you are there for her and that she can tell you honestly what is going on without judgement. I hid my marital problems from my family because I was afraid of judgement. Then when my ex pulled a gun on me there was a lot to explain about why I didn't say anything before. You just never know what *really* is going on unless you promise not to judge or give an opinion.

  • I would give my opinion only if asked.

  • I would listen, be supportive, and if she asked for my advice I would give it.
