We have a Master Tactition for a DiL
It may sound harsh to say this but after almost 14yrs sadly I've come to accept it's the truth 😢 I know many of you struggle but how do you cope when your time with your DGSs is under threat because of the "game" being played here?
It appears to be a control issue, and little by little over the years we seem to have been put in a bad light compared with her parents. Now they can't seem to accept that we love to treat tto children when we have them/care for them while they're at work. I do honestly wonder if this is all down to the fact of how much they enjoy their time with us. Perhaps by insisting that we deny them things when we have them, that somehow they won't be as close to us. Although we know that our time, love, attention etc is far more important to give them and I believe they would athat too. Its incredibly upsetting when all you want to do is love and support all of them but are being stumbled by rules & regulations 😣 btw in case you think we're being unfair it is from BOTH of them although she's definitely the power behind the throne! AND before anyone suggests that we form a better relationship, spend time or buy things/treat her and them, please let me say now that we've tried every which way over the years to form a loving relationship but nothing works I'm afraid and sadly we've come to the conclusion that it's really not what she/they want we're being taken for fools (sad) It all seems incredibly mercenary for anyone to want everything on their terms (😢)
Silent treatment - son
Caught in the act - neighbours
How to say it - 'no'
