I'm after advice from a grandmother ...
my ex was abusive to me verbally mostly, sometimes physically. My ex MiL oversees contact for her GS because of this and we have a sort of ok relationship.
But she doesn't want to hear about the past and thinks it can all be brushed under the carpet.
So am I being unreasonable to want to talk to her and explain what happened? She will be involved in GS's life and I want her to be, but I can't get over the fact of what happened. GS only grandparerents are on that side of the family - my parents are both dead. So how would a gran feel about hearing/knowing extent of her son's abuse. Gran wants to stay neutral but I feel that is ducking a very real issue and one that perhaps she could talk to her son about for GS's sake.
