Through grim experience, I can tell you that "gently" isn't an option at a certain point. With shit like that if you're thinking it, it already needs to stop. It's better to have a huge argument and lay down the law than let them potentially injure/kill themselves or others.

It sucks, but by the time they're able to admit it to themselves, damage has already been done. Just to their vehicle, if you're lucky. If you're not then you've got a whole heap of shit to sort out for someone who can't deal with these kinds of consequences.

It takes a special kind of mind to condense the OP into one, trite line.

It's impressive, particularly as that wasn't even what I was saying.

Right, there's also the whole getting it completely wrong.

In the last 2 1/2 hours, I had a nice walk, Made fettucine alfredo, and took a shower. I feel like I was sufficiently adult and good about it. Yay.

 :banana:

Acting adult is hard.

There comes a point at which you get so deep into it that you have the realization that there is no way out, and no one to adult for you if you should find yourself unable to adult. There is no back-up plan. Just you, being the adult.

It's terrifying.

It's even worse when you have to adult for the peop;e that used to adult for you at the same time as adulting for a tiny human.

It's knackering AND terrifying. And you don't even get a fucking "thank you".

More likely, yelled at. :horrormirth: My dad's Alzheimer's is advancing and we may need to move him in with us. It's fucking horrible. At least my spawn are old enough to help.

Oh man, my dad and his brothers are trying to figure out how to gently tell his parents that maybe they shouldn't drive.  They're in their 80's.  That and trying to get an alzheimer's stove that auto shuts off when you walk away because well, grandma has attention issues and grandpa is getting into this weird grandma needs to always cook and automatically know when he's hungry thing.

You're doing it wrong.
