Grown son will not let parents see their 7 year old grandson who only lives 4 miles away.
When my only grandchild turned 7...my son stopped us from seeing him or letting him visit. He also stopped him from seeing all other relatives at the same time.
My son and I had an argument about my grandson continuing music lessons. Maybe I said some things that I shouldn't have said but I have apologized. I wanted him to continue music and my grandson liked the music lessons but my son made him quit. Money for the lessons was not the issue. Also the grandson was coming to our house about once a week and my son said said some kid in neighborhood behaved disrespectfully to my grandson and never let him come to our house again. My grandson had no other friends he could play with and loved playing with the other kids.
My son does everything with him and manages everything the child does. My grandchild does have a loving mother who works a lot. My son has always taken care of my grandchild and does not have a job but goes to school. Me and everybody in family thinks that our son wants to be the only one in our grandchild's life and is jealous maybe of the grandchild loving us. It makes me feel like I am a bad person and I have never been anything but loving and the same with the rest of the family.
My son will not answer phone or door. At Christmas he did let us come over and give presents to grandchild but he ignored us basically in the same room with us. My sweet daughter in law says he is fine with her and our grandchild. I never thought this would happen in this family and I am heart broken. He has always not been very free for grandchild to visit but at least we could see him some. What is my son's problem? Depression maybe...but what can I do if he want speak to me.
