You are so right! It is the grandchildren who suffer in the end! I often wonder what my son will tell them when they are older and wonder why we weren't a part of their lives like my DIL's parents. My two other grandchildren do play with them and I am sure it will come up some day when they are older and they wonder who "Mae Mae and Pa Pa" are. Thank you for your thoughts, Dennis!View Thread
I am sad to say that it makes me feel better to know that I am not alone in a very similar situation. My younger son's wife hates me also and refuses to let myself and my husband spend ANY time with our two grandchildren. We got to see our grandson the day after he was born but not since then. It has caused so many problems that my son (who I was very close with) won't come around anymore either. I think he got tired of being put in the middle. I have decided that as long as he is happy and can be a good father that is what I want for him. I don't ever see this getting better unless she changes. As a side note, I have another DIL that I get along great with and see the grandchildren when ever I want. Which helps ease the pain.View Thread
