Question by fourcheeks4: What do I do with local grandparents that only care about themselves?
My step-mother in law only had one child, and she only took care of him until he was 3 then she moved out here (her choice) and didn’t start to take care of her son again until he was 17. I have two children 29 months and 11 months.. both who I absolutely adore, and I really don’t think that it’s a good idea to have the children around her every weekend. She freaks out under child stress. She only gives attention to my son, My daughter will be one this month and she hasn’t even spent time with her. Just like when my son was one. She was never a good parent to my husband and his brother, and his dad and step mom truly only care about themselves, that’s why he GAVE custody to his ex wife over his 12 yr old daughter, so he didn’t have to deal with her., and when they see her once a yr they treat her like she’s just a nuisance. What do I do raising my children with local grandparents that only care about themselves?
His father was a suspect in his real mom’s murder and his dad screwed him over by putting his name on a business my husband didn’t own.
Even when I was pregnant they didn’t care, when I got into a car wreck when I was 7 months pregnant they didn’t care or call. They went to the Bahamas when our son was born, and didn’t come to our daughter’s birth.
My husband and I have never had a babysitter, we are the only people that take care of our angels. we only go over there on supervised visits.
