Do you think it is appropriate?
On the one hand, i think a frank and open discussion is healthy. But on the other hand, it was a long time ago and they don’t even remember that, or so they claim.
My specific situation was that as a child, i went went through a violent divorce of my parents. Lots of yelling and screaming in the other room. My dad was an abusive drunk.
But what is burned into my memory is my mom chasing after my dad when he left the house, getting into 1969 Chevy station wagon and repeatedly ramming him in his Ford Pinto. Me and my siblings watching in horror from upstairs.
Cops came, neighbors checked on us kids, but times were different. Nothing really happened.
My Mom has no recollection of this event happening. She does not have Alzheimers. Dad died years ago from booze.
