my thing i've been dealing with for over two years is that my daughter and daughter in law don;t get along. but not just get along but had gotten nasty with each other. my son is cought in the middle, i used to feel for him. now it;s starting to be different. my daughter been really trying her best. but i see my daughter in law haven't. we have only the two kids. my daughter just want to be an aunt, but my son and his wife told her, we need to protect our son from you. no reason at all. but then my son tell his sister she need to call him and ask him to see how the baby is doing i had express myself to both kids, and even my daughter in law. i grew up never being really close to my siblies except my sister. me and one brother went years without speaking and we don;t speak much now. i don't want my only two kids be like that. then even though me and my wife are in arew 40's but out health isn't good. if something happen to us we can;t rest in pease. i also told my son, and still feel him and his wife just want it to be a one way street, everyone else need to do this or that and not them. they also try to put all the blame on my daughter, but when both girls has fault in this, not just my daughter. i think people need to own on thier faults and mistakes and stop passing the blames onto others. but i guess there will always be those who think they can say or do whatever and just don't care who they hurt, and god help you if you get mad at them, then they just B***h and complain and say i don't know why they are mad at me, it's thier fault not my life is way too damn short for all this

Family can drive you up the wall, that's for sure! Maybe you can suggest to all three of them that they call it a draw, no one is right and no one is wrong, and start over just being polite to each other. I know it's a long shot but I don't think either side is going to give an inch when it comes to putting the blame on the other so let's just stop blaming and start making nice. Good luck and try not to worry too much. Eventually they'll work it out.

That's a real shame, Yankee. You're right, Christians shouldn't be acting like that but anger can get in the way of Christian values. For everyone's sake it would be best for them to learn to get along but only they can do that. Like I said before, try not to worry too much. It's not good for you. That baby sure is cute, by the way!
