GRAHAM NORTON AGONY UNCLE
In his last column for Saturday, the author, comedian and presenter advises readers
What do you want to ask your daughter? Are there things you think she should know? It might be best to write to her. Don’t send her the first draft. Leave it for a week and then re-read it to make sure it has the tone and information that you want it to have. There may be two sides to every story, but for whatever reason your daughter obviously feels that your husband’s version of events is more credible than yours. Think about that.
Don’t be so quick to dismiss her opinions and reactions as ridiculous. Why did she call the police? Why is she so frightened of what you might do? Working through the difficult relationships in your life isn’t going to be easy, but it will be impossible if you aren’t completely honest with yourself. Look in the mirror – and be willing to accept that you may not like what you see.
