I have an adult daughter who is expecting her first child soon and I am worried because over the years , we don t seem to be able to bond really .
We don’t fall out exactly but I have to be careful what I say etc as she seems to know everything better than me.
She has done very well both in terms of career and husband ; he is at her beck and call and we see them most weeks but somehow I don’t have the closeness with her that I would like to have and I don’t know why nor do I know how to change things or whether I should accept things the way they are.
This makes me sad because I think that , as a consequence , she won’t allow me to be close to the child either .
I wonder if any other gransnet member has a similar problem ? Any thoughts would be welcome , thank you
