You are not wrong to feel hurt and confused. Here is what I would do if I were you: I would lay my cards on the table. I would call my parents and tell them I am concerned that we never seem to be able to see each other as much as I would like. That I love them and I was wondering how to solve this situation. This way you are not blaming or seem like you are being petty. Then I would say this: My door is ALWAYS open to you. Any time. I love you and want you to know our child and know how important you are to me. Then I would leave it at that. The reason for no more drama: because it isn't worth it. They are the ones who miss out. They are the ones who do not know how awesome that grandchild is. Yes it is sad. But you can find older friends to have that "grandparent like relationship with your child. cont...

By the way MAD is really a cover. When we are mad or angry it means that there are other more serious emotions under that anger. It usually is hurt, wounded, frustrated, sad, ect.... So know what you really feeling and then its okay to grieve that relationship that isn't the way you would like. Stick with the drama free approach and hold your head up high. Your child is watching and one day your actions now have a way coming back at you. One day he may call you screaming and crying for some perceived issue. You can teach him, starting now, the art of maturity and communication.
