I hope some of you saw that letter from a young lady who had popped into here to relieve her boredom whilst in lockdown.
I hope you can help me find it, because I'd like to reply to her.
(I lost her post through my ignorance with IT - l left to answer the phone and when I returned my page was blank)
The young lady had been reading the Estrangement thread and was pretty annoyed with us for seemingly (to her) putting the blame on to the Mums, and being very vindictive towards them because (to her) the blame was firmly on us.
This shocked me and I was going to write a furious reply, but having had time to think I was wondering how much of what she said had some truth in it?
It must, in many cases, be a matter of non communication and I'd like to know what she thinks could be done to heal some of these rifts.
There were some replies, genuinely angry replies, that really hurt in their viciousness towards us Grans that shook me. There is clearly a lot of misunderstanding going on and with a a bit of input from both sides, stated calmly and without prejudice, might help put some of these wrongs right. I'd very much like to put my own wrong right.
Where did I see this post? Why can't I find it again?
