DEAR HARRIETTE: I said something rude to my mother a couple of weeks ago, and I feel bad that I haven’t called her since.

She is elderly and has a poor memory. Part of me thinks if I call and act like everything is normal, she will be none the wiser.

Another part of me feels like I should apologize to her for saying something inappropriate that may have hurt her feelings.

I would feel bad, though, if I made her remember something she has totally forgotten. How should I proceed?

Avoiding Mom

DEAR AVOIDING MOM: First of all, avoiding your mother for weeks after you messed up is immature and inappropriate. Especially since you may have hurt her feelings, you should have reached out the next day to apologize and move on.
