We struggle with our adult son's behavior most when we perceive that his actions are potentially harmful either to himself and/or to others. This is especially the case when he doesn't carry the same opinion or he rationalizes the difference in perception as our seeking control over his independence. (And we have tried to listen to where he is coming from and explain the dangers in a way that we hope he can see it - many times to no avail.) Any thoughts on how to move forward and create independence when there seems to be such a lack of ability to perceive potential threats?
