Only discovered this website existed today. I have an age old problem but it's not just about a daughter-in-law but also my son. I am not going to whack on about the last 12 years but suffice to say I rarely see my grandchildren, four times a year probably maximum.
As a result, I feel there is not a relationship between us. When we do see them they barely say "hello", cannot make eye contact and there are issues regarding their behaviour. So much so that after years of walking on egg shells, biting my tongue I finally cracked and told a grandchild that she was rude. Daughter-in-law went berserk, screaming etc. we cut short our visit and left.
Have tried to instigate opportunity to talk things over to no avail. Any advice please.
