I’ve been estranged from my son for the past 9 months, I understand his reasoning but his perceptions and realities differ from mine and we can’t find common ground.
The reason I’m writing this is because I gift my Grandaughter (his 21 year old) £300 per month, as a student I know money is an issue for her and believed this to be a way of helping her through her student years.
On Saturday we met up to have coffee for my sons birthday, I was somewhat surprised to find she spends her money on Botox, fillers, false nails and make up. I didn’t mention anything but could hardly recognise her as the gorgeous girl that I’d last seen a few months ago.
My quandary is this, I never hear from her, never a thank you or any show of gratitude or respect for the money that’s in her account on the 1st of every month.
If I stop the money I’m going to be even more estranged, if I call I expect a torrent of abuse from my son down the line.
I’m feeling aggrieved and used.
Any suggestions as to how to handle this will be most welcome
