You can't force people to care.

you cant force someone else to care!

just let it go... kind reminders occasionally that they are welcome to be involved.... birthday invites, christmas cards, etc.....

but i wouldnt put too much effort into it!

Leave them alone. If they want to see them they will make the time.

Leave it alone they obviously don't care and it's not your job to make them care

I just feel bad. Because they are missing out on niece and nephews also.
I will stay out of it, but it sucks a little.

Don't make up problems.

There are actual problems in the world like hunger, cancer, war....

Leave it, don't force them to have a relationship.
