    Maybe the reason for the fractured relationship (caller #4) is that you don’t listen! I lost count of the number of times Steve asked the caller to “listen”. Will someone please explain to me why you call a show, asking for advice, and then babble and babble and babble…talking over the hosts. Good grief, ask your question and then be quiet and listen! More and more the callers are just beyond belief in their inability to LISTEN. They just keep on repeating the same old story or situation over and over and over. It is almost painful to listen to this show because of the number of callers who just keep babbling. Don’t the hosts have a “mute” button they could use?

      I agree. I had to laugh about the mute button. I got the feeling that the conflict is because mother in law (grammaw) is demanding and probably has no respect for the parents, (who are by the way) the parents, not them. Grandparents can be too demanding and create more conflict. Then she went on about her and her husband’s illnesses, and aches and pains, which screamed loudly to me ‘victim role.’

    Lynne, I agree with you, I sometimes there’s technical difficulties but some caller’s will continue yacking off at the mouth instead of listening. My thing is that when you’re asking for advice or help and then giving but’s, what if’s, and questioning the advice and help I mean why bother. We have to keep all the caller’s, and commenter’s in prayer. (me too)!
