Hello @Tomsamsmum

My mum used to call out for her mum so I know how distressing it is to have to deal with this. I found the best way to calm her down was to tell her her mum would be there soon. Of course I felt bad about lying then but if a “love lie” as it’s called on here works it’s often the best option.
