Ready to give up
Will try to keep this short. Son & his wife belong to a religous group that borders on being a cult. They live only an hour's drive away and have 4 children. We rarely see them and here's why: when we go there, we are treated like dirt by both the parents (because we aren't "saved")and the kids. The kids are mean and disrespectful (hitting, punching, sarcastic, etc. to us)and we suspect they've picked up the message from their parents that because we aren't members of their church, we are worthless.
Last saw them 7 months ago and we have no plans to subject ourselves to that treatment ever again.
Meanwhile, we are the "absent grandparents" and will remain so until things change.
Other than keeping our distance, do you have any ideas?
