I dwell on this all the time and want to know if I am the only one. It upsets me.
I can’t see my grandchildren who are cousins actually having a relationship when they’re older.
My two children get on very well. I am close to my daughter and her children. They are lovely but have been brought up differently to my son’s children. My daughter is relaxed about things so if the children wanted to give up an instrument for example they could. My daughter-in-law made hers carry on, hers did the entrance exams as well. All of them have good manners but son’s children’s are very formal so extended family love them. I feel son’s children seem years older.
At Christmas we were in a restaurant and it occurred to me the children are a different class to one another. Son’s children talk to my daughter’s children like they’re desperate to be polite.
Daughter used to often invite them round but they never seem to want to go. They are all lovely to me but just polite to one another. I get the sense that son’s children seem to pity daughter’s children and daughter’s children seem intimidated by son’s.
I am disturbed by the idea of them not being close. Even now I am close to most of my cousins and receive Christmas cards from all of them. God this was long.
