I am 52 yrs old I have 3 kids ages 35, 32 & 11, I also have 3 grown step kids and 15 grandkids.
Well, my oldest who is 35 has 3 kids they seem to like the other grand parents better. They get more materialistic things from them they have a ton more money then us. They buy them clothes, shoes, pay for their hair cuts etc.
Not the point anyway, My 11 year old stayed with her sister last night, and she told my granddaughter very quietly to go in her room and watch my daughter so she didn't steal anything.
Now, I have to say she picked up a Webkinz that wasn't hers the other day but then put it back down when she realized she had more then she brought there.
She ( my 11 yr old) when she was like 5 did take something that wasn't hers and brought it home but has not done anything like that since.
Now, mind you my dd has 127 webkinz and since she in into them my oldest dd is trying to get my granddaughter into them also. My dd has a lot of stuff, she is not hurting for anything.
I guess what I am asking is how would you handle what the oldest daughter said to the dd my granddaughter? (and it wasn't meant for my ears at all.)
Or would you just let it slide.
Now, my grandkids all have grandparents to spoil them. My dd only has my parents and my mom is not the maternal type and my dad is sick and has a ton of medical problems and my inlaws have all died. So we do spoil her even having 5 brothers and sisters she doesn't get a lot of good treatment from any of them.
I'm just kind of hurt my daughter would treat her like that when her kids get everything handed to them.
I hope you can understand since it is a long complicated mess. I tried to shorten it up some.
