I have a parent who is renowned for stirring up problems. I have come to the conclusion that no matter what I do, this parent will never be happy. This frustrates me. What have you done in the past when you have a bad relationship with a parent? I limit the words in my emails and make sure I don't share too much. This parent picks apart everything I say, twists the words, and then responds to me with a condescending email. Grrr...I just want to enjoy my job.
