    I was exaggerating a bit about 6, probably, although it depends on the situation. I suspect late childhood or early adolescence is common (except perhaps where the parent was overtly abusive and there are some PTSD features) because that's when most of us will begin to question why things are the way they are - younger children for the most part accept anything as normal.

    Next time I find myself wanting to strangle my grandmother with my mother, I'll give you a call, Nancy!

    wow... I can not imagine me, my mum, and her 'mother' (If you can call her that) living in the same house. tension would be huge, no doubt about it. and while i know that the situation is not universal, i think the both of you deserve a pat on the back!! lol

    Point of clarification: By "restraint", do you mean "impulse control"? or "tying them to a tree"?

    Actually, it's not too bad most of the time. We all get along quite well. My grandmother's meddling can be problematic, but mother and I are both pretty laid-back people, so we just shine the Great One on most of the time and go about our business. It's only if she begins to insist on controlling other people's lives that one, or both, of us finds it necessary to step up and tell her to butt out.

    Besides, the house is run by the cats, anyway. None of us really matters. Our only purpose, collectively, is to serve as can openers, shrimp skinners, catbox cleaners and laps. Le sigh...
