Would this break your heart? adult content

I have two adult children, one married, one single. The married one has never come to visit me since he left for college. The single one told me this past week that there was nothing he wanted from his old room and that he will no longer be coming to visit. We had a good relationship, I sent them both to great colleges, gave them each a car and I gave each of them a down payment on a home. They tell my my humble home is in the 'ghetto'.

  • After my brother got back from college he changed into a very different person, too. He was better than my DAD, who gave him everything!!!! He won't talk to me, either. I am SOOOO sorry for your pain. It is VERY unfair & I would have a serious talk with him. Don't hold it in, let him know how offended you are.
    HUGE HUGS!!!

  • I'm so sorry. I can't imagine how much this must hurt. It sounds like maybe you did your job alittle too well and now they have a superiority complex.

  • That would break my heart! Maybe they dont want to visit you, but what about you visiting them... see what all you have gave to them... There is a certain "Prince of bel air" episode that this reminds me of... Got to seach for it! Maybe you should email/ send it to him so he can get a wake up call..

  • Awww I'm so sorry.... I'm afraid you're going to have to let go, and if they come crying to you, you're going to have to turn them away if they only come because they want something.... If they just want to see how you are, and visit, that's fine, but not for anything else. I'm so sorry I don't have more advice.... I hope things turn around for you...

  • yes that would break my heart! they need to remember where they are from and if anything, give back to where they came from. They should be proud they have risen above and share their success stories with others and give credit to the woman who made it all possible!

  • Sounds like you gave them every"thing" except good moral values. They obviously didn't learn to value your hard work for them or you as their mother or where they came from. I'm very sorry for you all.
