“I was enraged by the daughter-in-law’s behavior when my husband and I went to our son’s in-laws to announce the birth of our grandson. However, my son’s actions were particularly reprehensible.


Our three children—two sons and a daughter—all now have families of their own. My two sons each have their own homes and live with their spouses. My eldest son recently became a father, and my spouse and I were ecstatic.

On the day of their hospital discharge, we paid them a visit and even brought some cash. But it didn’t appear like my daughter-in-law and her mother were happy to see us. They were residing at the home of my daughter-in-law’s parents, by the way. They didn’t even offer us coffee during the roughly hour we were there.

I brought a plush toy as a gift, but the soon-to-be bride refused to take it. But who gives a gift back? Had my daughter-in-law exhibited such behavior from the start, I wouldn’t have been taken aback. We had excellent relationships back then and would often talk and talk on the phone. Her attitude toward us totally changed when the baby was born.

Since he resides in their house, my son is unable to respond. We were both upset when we got home with my spouse. Subsequently, I attempted to get my daughter-in-law to come see us over multiple calls, but she declined. My son informed me recently that she isn’t nursing the child. This makes me feel bad for my grandchild.

I’m unable to speak with her, though. When my friends and family inquire about my grandson, I find myself at a loss for words. I can’t believe I’ve only had one encounter with my grandchild. My son said that the baby is still very small and that we can go for a walk together when he grows up, when I recommended that he at least meet the baby for a stroll.



My mother bequeathed to me her flat. At first, I considered selling it and giving my kids an equal portion of the money. My spouse then stated that wasn’t necessary.

He made the decision to update it and let it go. My spouse feels that we have no future with these sons. We ought to consider our own latter years. I concur with my spouse.
