If all you sent to your kid(same town) was a birthday card for their birthday(May 4th)

(nothing in the card),would you expect your kid to go all out for you for Mother's Day,or would you be appreciative of the card you received?

NOT ME,it's 2 other family members

  • I would be thrilled to be acknowledged. I don't expect my kids to spend their $ on me. Gift giving is not a tit-for-tat thing, you give b/c you want to, not to expect something in return when it's your turn.

  • Just being thought of is good enough.

  • it's my aunt and cousin
    my aunt's whole world is her other kid. This one,in the question, tries to get some time alone with her mom,and she'll bring the other sister along. She'll call her mom and all she talks about is the other one. My aunt makes her feel like crap. She got the birthday card in the mail. When she called to say thanks,all my aunt talked about was the other daughter.
    my aunt was going on a tirade this morning,called her daughter a bitch for just sending a card.

  • That's terrible! I don't understand how anyone can play favorites w/ their children. I feel very sorry for the dau who is snubbed. Since you see it, I hope you can help befriend your cousin. It won't replace the loss of a mother's love, but surrounding yourself w/ those who value you & love you helps the self esteem. :)

  • She needs to tell her mother exactly how she feels. If her mother continues in the same behavior the daugher needs to start to distance herself from the negativitiy and toxic behavior.
