So my husband and I have made the painful decision to estrange from my parents. Many things led to this decision and we have tried so many times to reconcile (see my very long post).
The question is, what do I tell / write to the kids?
-parents favoured one gc over another
-parents were constantly nasty, called us names
-parents refused to acknowledge my sons disabilites
Quick Update from last post:
-Met them in the park after bubba girl was born. Went okay
-Mum regularly calls to complain about her life
-They completely ignored Son2s 4th birthday (didn't even call or message). He's the non favourite.
So what is the best way to deal with this in regards to the children. I can't talk to the boys about it as their severe speech delays mean that they don't understand anything that isn't right in front of them (Look a ball).
I regularly write the boys letters but so far have not written anything negative about my parents at all.
What do the grandparents / parents here think? Should I write them a letter and explain why things have happened this way. My parents might not be alive when my kids finally read it, although if something happened to us, my parents could try to poison their minds.
Note - Our wills state that my in-laws get custody of our kids if anything happens to us but wills can be contested.
