I have a grandson still at school and also an older step grandson who are half brothers
The sgs left school with no qualifications did a couple of courses at tech college at which he just messed about and is now signed on the dole doing nothing. He spends his money on bottles of beer etc and seems to like to sleep in the afternoon. I don't think he is taking anything illegal but seems very lazy and makes as little effort as possible . He has yet to buy a small gift for anyone.
The gs at school is a very caring youngster and has for several years bought little Christmas gifts for his family (including me). He does well at school and realises he will have to study to get on. The thing is do I go on giving them both the same for Christmas (they prefer money to spend).
Some people will probably think oh its Christmas don't be mean, but I'm retired and don't have a lot and just feel a bit grudging of giving to someone who doesn't seem to care or even say thank you.
I would really appreciate any views both for and against my feeling in order to get a balanced view.
Hope you can help, thanks.
