A good example is my great grandmother. She went up to my mum when she (my 
mum) was quite sick and told her "If you're not careful, you'll end up the 
same way you're father did." For reference, my grandfather died at the age of 
32 of pneumonia. While my great grandmother had a point about how my mum 
looked, it was probably not the best possible way to tell her.
