in law confusion
(keene, nh, usa)
Hello, My name is Kasey and I am 61 years old. I have a problem with my son's wife, she is a very negative person. She has some health issues and has no money sense. My son works night shift and has trouble sleeping during the day and she has no sympathy for him. He is so tired and worn out and all she does is spend money she shouldn't and complain about everything. My 2 grandkids are growing up to be just like her, they are 12 and 8 and very demanding and greedy and disrespectful just like their mom. I know I should not help them out with money as it does not teach her anything but to use me as a crutch. I have been having anxiety and panic attacks because I don't know how to cope with her anymore. I don't think my son knows how she acts. She phones me at least once a day with complaints. I have tried to tell her that it is hard to listen to and she is good for a little while, then it starts over again. Sorry this is so long. Thank you.
