How do you deal with Family that are very childish

How do you deal with family that are very childish? I have tried to put them out of mine and my family's life but no matter what is going on in the world its always some thing and you cant get away from them because the family you do deal with still brings them up no matter how many times you tell them you dont want anything to do with the so called family. And no matter what you do in your life for your family they think its something about them even though its in no way about them. And when you cant do anything without them running their mouth about what you do or what you want to do whether it be with your family such as go places or do things sport or other activities

  • Honestly, we have very little contact with extended family because of things like this. I don't need that drama in my life, and I don't want it in my kids' lives.

  • Laughter.

    Seriously... childish people make me laugh. Often right at them. Strangely, they don't want to spend a lot of time around me.

    Convenient, eh?

  • Thanks and that sounds a lot like what I'm going through. I say a lot of people are going though the same thing. I just wish people would keep to them selves sometimes. If you are happy good happy for you but keep my life and my happiness out of your mouth you know what I mean

  • It sounds like they need a life, instead of trying to be in yours all the time. They need to find something else to do or meet other people.
