???? I am shocked (should not of been) at how that family member has chosen to deal with the situation in which her MI child damaged my valuable guitar about a month ago. I’ve waited a month to hear something. She has not said a word to me about it nor anybody me in the family. Finally, found out her intention was to have the boy say something to me at a family Xmas gathering. She also had him write a note. Only we didn’t attend this gathering after all. Our son came over today for Xmas. He had a card from the mother and a note from the boy. He warned me that since the boy was oppositional he refused to admit he broke the guitar. (He was seen by an adult doing this). After getting caught, he then said he and my grandson broke it together. My grandson is much younger, and skinny and not hyper. This boy is older, troubled, larger and was literally SEEN doing it. It’s not to be believed. Additionally, this boy has been written up by teachers countless times for such incidents and Lying. He wrote a note saying he is sorry he and my grandson broke the guitar. (WTH?) Then she gave me a Xmas card with a small gc to a local store in it. No note about the guitar. A little note about Xmas and family. Huh? I’m more peeved than ever. Are millenials suffering from severe Social Learning Disability (LD)?I got a Christmas gift? And a bizarre apology from this disturbed child blaming my innocent grandson. A month late and at Xmas? WTH? I wanted a simple and sincere apology. Nothing more. It was a very special item to me...everyone who knows me knows this. But, I suppose I have to accept this women where she is. In the weeds as they say. Clueless. Brain dead. This might be as best as she can do. Her version of an apology. Maybe accept this is the best she has to offer. I somewhat accept this. It might be the best she can do. It’s a shame. AND.. When this Difficult Child really gets rolling...gets older....i shudder to think about it. I don’t see how she will be able to cope at all. As a side note...when our Difficult Child would misbehave I would make her write ten sentences. She might refuse or get mean. I would tell her it was now twenty. One time it went to 100. No tv, play time, friends, desserts etc any privileges until all were done. The most she ever did after that incident was 20. I don't know. We will see. It’s been s t r a n g e.
