The dreaded call and how to prep for it
Grandma said she will give her dd our phone number again so she can contact the kids. My issue is it has been 8 months since she called. And she moved out of state without so much as a good-bye. There are a lot of feelings that have arised as a result of that. I am worried about how the kids will react when she calls because bm has been out of sight out of mind and this call will stir up a lot of emotion. Not so much ss's emotions because he really thinks of her as more of a distant relative. But the girls are more sensitive.
Should we tell the girls that grandma says she is giving bm our # and she may call. Maybe talk to them about their feelings so they can prepare for the call and maybe think about the things they want to say? OR do you think its better to wait and see if she calls and let them deal with it in their own way then. And we can be there for them after?
