1. Caring for Aging Parents- When Siblings Disagree Kim Hegwood 18:50

Now, in all fairness, taking care of an aging parent brings challenges that no one’s been prepared for. So, it’s a highly emotional time. There’s so much decision making and there’s so much at stake. And really most of us don’t do well when there’s that much pressure. So, there’s also the added pressure, there’s family history dynamics, plus added pressure. And the fear of, you know, the margin of error that is involved with these decisions. So those combined the answer is, yes, it is common for siblings to disagree.
