DEAR DEIDRE: SINCE our daughter was born three years ago, my in-laws have made no effort to see her.
They didn’t see her during lockdown which was not their fault. They saw her pictures on social media or through video chats but no effort was made on their part.

We went to their house last summer, but they hardly engaged with her.
They never visit us. All the effort comes from me and my partner.
He has spoken to them and told them they need to step up, but nothing changes. I am 31 and my partner is 33.
They make more of an effort with our nephews and see them much more.
I feel as though I have run out of ideas and patience with them.
DEIDRE SAYS: You could try to find out why they treat their grandkids differently but also accept your in-laws are unlikely to change.
Better to put your energy into planning activities and events that are convenient for you and your family and let go of wishing things were different.
It can be an important first step for you to feel emotionally liberated and most importantly, it puts you in charge of your family life.
