is causing me to be more distant with my parents. They don't make any effort, so why should I? It does make sense that they are helping my two younger sisters, who do need help. Am I am glad my parents are able to help them. But I just cannot understand how they justify ignoring my kids. I did talk to my mom about it. She apologizes and says she will try harder. My dad thinks I am overly sensitive and says my sisters and their kids NEED him now. It has made me truly thankful for my DH's family who do make an effort with our kids. I hope that someday my sisters get on their feet and give my parents a break. Maybe then my parents will notice that they have a couple other grandkids who would like to see them.
