  • Stop taking care of him like he's a baby. He'll keep wanting you to for as long as you do it.

    When people have no opportunity to find out they can manage something (including surviving making mistakes) they resist doing it, because they're afraid of failing. But if they have to, because no one else will do it for them, they soon discover they're a lot more capable than they feared.

  • My Dad used to cook, clean and do his own laundry. After he met my mom, she used to trip over herself to do it for him. Now he's retired, she's still working and does not understand why he can't take care of himself. trained him that way?? She still does it. If she will be working late, she will cook a meal the night before for him to heat up. When she goes away for the day, the same thing or she will ask me to invite him over for dinner. Then she wants to complain about it. I told her 'tell him to do it himself, he's capable." That's what I'm telling you. Tell him to take care of himself, he's capable.
