  • I wouldn't expect my SIL to attend my child's soccer games. If she came once I would be thrilled. Why should she attend?

  • Not unless they specifically asked to come and then didn't show.

  • Nope. I would not. I invite people, if they have other things going on then so be it.

  • No. My SIL has never attended my kids' sporting events. One time would be more than enough.

  • No, it wouldnt bother me at all. Matter of fact...none of them come to my sons basketball or baseball games,lol. They could if they wanted to...but its not an obligation on thier part whatsoever.

  • Me? No. I wouldn't expect anyone to go to my kids' soccer games except DH and myself, and maybe occasionally Grandma and Grandpa if they wanted to. I'm close with my SILs but I wouldn't expect them to come to my kids' games. Everyone's situation like that is different.

  • Do you how boring those games can be~not to mention how old soccer moms look after all that sun?

  • I'd care if the child cared.

    Answer by jus1jess at 2:44 PM on Sep. 15, 2010

  • Nope. None of my sil's, brothers or bil's ever came to any of my kids games. I wasn't offended, although I think it would have been great if they had come!
