Towanda, your answer to Jodi doesn't make much sense.

Since your OP was about (presumably) your adult children who see your advice as criticism, she asked you if your kids had actually asked for your advice.

In response to your OP, if you are offering 'advice' often, or every time you think that they did something wrong, or something that you don't agree with, and all of this is unsolicited advice, you may be overstepping your boundaries. After all, you did raise them, and they are adults now...Presumably you raised them to the best of your ability, giving them sage advice along the way. Now you need to back off, and let them live their adult lives. It's ok to offer occasional advice, but understand that, as adults, they don't have to take your advice. When they don't you don't need to be offended, just realize that they are exercising their prerogative as adults to make their own decisions.

Hi Jodi I am sorry I was advising about beìng offensive to "just married women only" I felt that the community was a wholesome communty for those that are married and wanted to share their joy! I did not feel it was offensive I enjoyed reading the happiness of others and hope one day it will happen for me. I advised her to enjoy the comments and maybe start a community or conversation of her own that is in her lane. I hope I have made my post clear. Again my apologies peace and blessings....swangirl.

It would help if we knew what you were advising them about and if they actually asked for your advice.
