Concerned about daughter’s high-risk hobby



November 28, 2018 - 11:01 AM

Dear Carolyn: My daughter was recently injured in a skydiving accident and had surgery on a vertebra in her back; she skydives for fun and has over 200 jumps and loves it.

How do I tell her the risks are too high — she has children — and she shouldn’t continue skydiving? She’s determined to go again as soon as she is recovered. — Scared Mom

Answer: You don’t get to tell other adults how to live their lives. You don’t even get to tell other adults how not to throw their lives out of an airplane.
