Ask Amy: This abusive woman expects me to help her, and I feel obligated

DEAR AMY: My mother is a single, 60-year-old woman who does not want to be a responsible person. Her father was verbally abusive. She married my dad and both of them were abusive toward each other and toward their children. They divorced 14 years ago.

Columnist Amy Dickinson (Bill Hogan/Chicago Tribune)

Since then she has become an alcoholic and a smoker. She blames her problems on her parents and my father and feels like all of her kids should be taking care of her now. (My grandmother, before she died, helped to pay her bills.)

She refuses to get mental help because she claims to not need it, due to her degree in psychology 35 years ago.

She’ll stop drinking briefly and then resume. She verbally abuses her kids, but still expects us to help her because she gave birth to us.
