Ask Amy: Sisters should lay their problems to rest
Dear Amy: The letter from “Hurting Mom” certainly brought back some painful memories for me. She was concerned about her husband’s overprotective and intrusive parenting toward their daughter (he routinely reads her email).
My mother was like that! And just as you predicted, this hovering and interference delayed my own problem-solving skills. I was a mess until I broke free.
– Free at Last
Dear Free: It turns out that your mother was the problem you needed to solve.
