and sort things out, she hit the ceil­ing and told me I was the one who needs ther­apy. Then she brought up my flaws and my past drink­ing prob­lem. Granted, I have made mis­takes, and I’m not per­fect, but I’ve learned and grown.

Af­ter 10 years she di­vorced her hus­band. She got cus­tody of the kids and the house.

Dear Dad: I would look back and ex­am­ine all the things I did to fos­ter her be­hav­ior. An ex­am­ple would be pay­ing for her di­vorce.

Don’t do it for her or for your­self.

Do it for the sake of your grand­chil­dren.
