For months now Jim’s daughter, Cara, has been either a whirling dervish or a weeping basket case. He’s concerned that she has a manic-depressive disorder and wants her to seek help, but he’s unsure how to proceed. She’s gotten very defensive when he’s suggested therapy in the past, and he doesn’t want to jeopardize their tenuous relationship. He’d also like to talk it over with Cara’s new husband, who seems oblivious, but Jim doesn’t want to throw a monkey wrench into their marriage. What should Jim do: take the risk and confront Cara directly, try to enlist her husband, or just remain supportive--and mum?
