    Conflicts are common between people and ageing parents. Often caregivers experience depression, anxiety, stress, guilt, sadness, worry, fatigue, illness etc to mention a few. It is quite challenging to not lose one’s cool when dealing on a day to day basis. Sleep problem is one of the misguided reasons. Especially with aging parents long line of history and unresolved conflicts caregiving roles are reversed. Check this article on caregiver tips http://www.c-care.ca/blog/aging-parent/caregiver-tips-avoid-conflicts-aging-parent/ . The simple measures to overcome it includes restraining in tense situations, having a third party deal it or being a good listener.
