Asking the Right Questions


Your loved one is restlessly pacing around the living room in the early evening. What does this behaviour indicate? Choose one:

She is nervous that her favourite show is not going to come on. She has to use the bathroom She is undecided about what to eat for dinner She doesn't like the idea of going to sleep later in the evening.


More than likely, she has to use the bathroom, but...

...that might not be the only reason for her pacing. Offer to help take her to the bathroom. But if that is not the answer, guide the conversation with her to help you discover the appropriate solution.
