    I have another topic to float, what is/is there neutral ground between control and enabling? E.g., my mother lives in her car. She now needs a new car. Her car is dead and has been towed away from the last time… I don’t know how to mind my own business here … helping her get a new car seems like mitigating the natural consequences, ie enabling. Refusing to help seems like trying to control her and trying to make her change her decision to live in her car. Frankly, i don’t think it really makes any difference what I do at this point. it’s about her and her choices at this point. So I really have nothing to direct me, do I flip a coin? Is there anything in the library on control / enabling or other resources you’d recommend, Marnie?
