You know your child so well. Or at least, you used to.
When it comes to behavior from your adult child that surprises you, what seems “out of character” may actually be an adult child expressing an essential part of who she is.
How you respond to out-of-character behavior will probably have some impact on the relationship. Whether the effect is ultimately positive or negative, is up to you.
Here’s the quote from T.S. Eliot, recited in this episode:
“We die to each other daily. What we know of other people is only our memory of the moments during which we knew them. And they have changed since then. To pretend that they and we are the same is a useful and convenient social convention which must sometimes be broken. We must also remember that at every meeting we are meeting a stranger.” (T.S. Eliot)
