They have the right to decide when and for how long they want to be in your child's life. As long as you develop this attitude, your child won't hate you later in life mistakenly believing you blocked their relatives efforts. Personally, I go out of my way to keep the doors open, whether they like me or not, for my child's sake. My kids relatives, whether seen or unseen, have never had to steal pictures of my kids from me. I freely send them pictures on a regular basis. I've done this consistently over 26 years (the age of my oldest). It's taken this long for them to acknowledge that they were wrong and commend me on doing the right thing for the right reason. Blood ties are one thing, and I'm a member by default. I can't say honestly that it's always been easy to get past my emotionalism or hurt feelings. However, I also didn't want to give my child a mixed message about family. In the long run, it's been worth it!

Do you homeschool? From what grade did you start your children and what grade...
