When should a parent learn to let go?
I know this is a petty thing, but it bugs me to no end.
My daughter is a wonderful gal and an immaculate housekeeper, EXCEPT for when it comes to cleaning the carpet. It is so filty that I can not stand to see the grandkids living on such "dirt". I know they live on a very low income, but have offered to pay for someone to come in and deep-clean the carpet...... For some reason, her husband thinks, "it will only get dirty again"...but they wash their clothes, dishes, cars, etc....that it just burns me to see their carpet being destroyed by filth.
She has pretty well let me know that this subject is "off limits"....so all you daughters, should I just let it go?
