  1. Hi, I have a real dilemma with my daughter (she is 21 and has a 2 year old and any day expecting her 2nd). I see my kids (26 year old son, 24 year old son and daughter)on almost a daily basis and my grandaughter whenever I can. My daughter is making my life a misery as she makes me feel is guilty all the time. My son's are great really apart from the odd text "mum, I can't believe I'm not going to see you for ages and it breaks me heart" However, I have never had any of this from my daughter! In fact she is like a stone and uses every opportunity to rub it in my face that Im not going to see Niamh (my grandaughter) for possibly years! Just today she sent a text then a phone call to ask if I would mind Niamh as she wasn't feeling well (she has been in labour for last 6 months and always tells me she is always ill and being honest I'm sick of hearing about it all) I said yes and went around to collect my grandaughter and basically I over-stayed my welcome as she told me I had to leave as she was going to bed. Now she knows I have no furniture left and I was quite comfy sitting on her sofa just minding Niamh while she sat doing nothing, I even told her to go to bed but this wasn't good enough for her. To cut a long story short, because I told her she was very rude telling me to leave she went mental and told me to get out and I would never see Niamh again and LITERALLY pushed me out of her front door! I HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF THIS BEHAVIOUR. We (the whole family) know she is spoilt and has to have everything her own way but I'm sooooooooo fed up now. I have told my eldest son (who also can't stand being around her) that I really don't care whether I see her again before I leave and I really mean it, however, It will break my heart if I don't get to see Niamh and new baby but feel that i must now make a stand. I am so sick of the abuse she gives me and the upset she causes. Does anyone have any suggestion for me please? I love my daughter and my grandaughter but I really cannot stand the emotional blackmail any more. Is it a case of I am going to have to give up my grandchildren so she cannot use them against me anymore? She wouldn't even let me kiss Niamh goodbye today and told the little girl that Nanny doesn't want to be with her and she will never see me again. This is really tearing me apart. I was hoping to stay in constant touch with Niamh through skype but this depends on her mum (my daughter) connecting computer for this. Should I try and forget I ever had a daughter? (don't know how I will though as I have tried this before and always end up giving in to her) Sorry for such a long thread but I'm just sitting here on my one and only garden chair, really upset and wondering what I can do to make her see that she can't treat me like this anymore.
