I have a real dilemma in my family and I need some sound advice. As most of you already know, I have 2 grands named Chloe (17 months) and Cooper (2 weeks) they are the youngest of my 8 grandchildren. These two belong to Hope, my youngest daughter.
My problem is with Brian, who is 7 and the son of Susan, my oldest daughter. Brian hates Chloe and now says he hates Cooper too, even though he has never met him, doesn't want to. He says, he hates all babies, but won't give a reason as to why. Brian will scream, whine and throw a fit every time Chloe comes near him, looks at him or touches his toys. He has ruined every family get together we have ever had.
Brian has been a problem child from the get go, if he doesn't get his way, he throws a big tantrum, has ever since he was small. He is the baby and the only boy. He has trouble at school as well. I do not think my daughter and son-in-law are very good parents. They would rather give in to Brian, than face the problem and fix it. He does not like coming to our house, because we refuse to tolerate his behavior. I think Brian needs professional help and or a good spanking!!!!
He has told Hope he wishes Chloe was dead!!. Hope told Susan of this and she wanted to know what happened to bring it on. Brian was not reprimanded at all by his parents. I am at my wits end with this child. His other cousins, Amy's kids, can't stand to be around him at all and they are good kids. The last time Amy was home, one week ago, I didn't invite Susan over. It was so nice and peaceful. My hubby thought I was a horrible person. Why should I let one person ruin the whole day for everyone else?
Another example was at Christmas when the grands were opening their gifts. Chloe accidentally bumped into Brian, she was barely one then, he started screaming for someone to get her out of here. Susan picked Chloe up and removed her from all the action....I blew up!! I told her to put Chloe back and if anyone was being removed, it was her son!! This happens every time, even if Chloe just looks at Brian.
Easter is coming up and we will have a family get together. Do I invite Susan and family, only to know what a catastrophe it will be? Do I just have Amy and Hope's families with peace and harmony? I really would like your input on this. I know if I invite Susan, I will NOT tolerate any of Brian's antics and I will NOT keep my mouth shut any longer!! Feel free to speak your mind on this matter. I really need your HELP!!
