The best way to approach someone you don't agree with, especially
when they are family and
a) you need to continue to coexist with this person again
and b) things can heat up because you aren't strangers
is to really keep your cool!
If you want to steer her in another direction, calmly list why you don't agree and point out things she will agree with -like for instance shock collars can be expensive-more so then one session with a behaviorist. You could also point out videos on youtube of people using shock collars to show why you don't agree with them.
Also make her realize that she *has* to deal with this effectively and soon, or she's going to have BIG vet bills coming her way.
Be suggestive, informative-concerned and helpful. Do not be pushy, angry, upset or judgy (not a word but you know
