Give It a Try but Don’t Expect Much

Posted on | February 3, 2019 | Comments Off on Give It a Try but Don’t Expect Much

Dear Short Answers:
Do I have a right to insist that my grown son and his family visit me in my home? My grandsons have never seen me in my own home, which means on some very basic level, they have no idea who I am.

Dear Granny:
We feel you but insisting is unlikely to deliver a favorable outcome. Try an invitation for a specific date with a conversation explaining why it is so important to you. Try not to be too upset if your request is met with the litany of how hard they are working and the many demands their lives require.  But you will know what their priorities are, and what a big mistake they are making.
