Our expert says:
This is often a difficult situation. Mothers often actually do know best, but even those who rarely know best, are often convinced that they do. Can't you simply agree that as it causes break-doqwns, she will not use the dishwasher ? Maybe she has the time to actually wash dishes herself, the old-fashioned way ?
Can you find OTHER things which she can do, which would actually be useful ? She presumably actually does want to both BE useful and to FEEL useful - find more productive ways in which she can achieve that. Is it possible to get her involved in some forms of charitable / volunteer work in which she could be useful without bothering others ? Maybe something involving stuffing envelopes rather than washing dishes ?
