I have a 19 year old grandson who I was very close to when he was small. My DIL and I do not see each other [long story and 3.5 years now], so things are difficult. Grandson has come over to me on my birthday, Christmas days and a couple of times when with his dad.
He now has a job, good wages and a car. I am 15 minutes away from his house, 4 minutes in the car but haven't seen him since March. I've asked him on 3 occasions if I can take him out for something to eat and to text me his free evening/s. He hasn't replied.
We do not give adults in the family presents any more, I just send a food gift for them all to share and the grandchildren [5 in total] get Christmas money from me.
What would you do? Do I class GS as an adult now and just send a card? Or still give money even though he does not bother with me? I may be sounding unreasonable but feeling very hurt...and wondering if or when there is a cut off point. I am on a very low pension.
What's next? - Brexit
Collections - clutter
