I have 2 grownup children who have done well for themselves, both financially and with their choice of partners . I am also lucky that they both live near me .
How ever , I am finding that it’s all one way : I do a lot for them and I invite them round for meals quite often but I find that I don’t get much in return.
They are happy to see us but it tends to be here in our house and they don’t reciprocate invitations much at all.
I miss people’s company as I live with my older husband who is quite grumpy ( see previous post ) and this situation hurts me .
They never seem interested in our life , holidays or whatever either whereas we always enquire about their holidays etc
Does anybody have this same problem with adult children ? Why are they so selfish ? And what’s the best attitude to have in response to this ?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks
