My mother and stepfather support this relationship and think it will be good for her. Because of this, my mother decided to disown me and my sister. What I don't understand is that my mother mentioned this whole dating thing about four years ago.
After our first was born, my father-in-law would call to say that he would be grilling that weekend and wondered if the baby would like some prime rib.My mother-in-law was happy to bake and decorate cookies with my second-grader for a school activity.I would suggest that "Crying Mother" step into a more supportive role.Does she invite the family over for a meal and fun activity?
Does she offer to take the children so the parents can have time alone?
Does she inquire about the children's activities and attend when possible?
