Woman won­ders how to have closer ties with her 2 daugh­ters-in-law

The China Post - - TV & COMICS -

DEAR AN­NIE: I have two daugh­ters-in-law who seem dis­re­spect­ful to me. The first one only vis­its on Christ­mas Day. Yet she has no prob­lem call­ing when she wants me to take her kids to a doc­tor’s ap­point­ment or pick them up from school. The other one does the same, but her ex­cuse is that they are too busy to see me be­cause they are spend­ing time with her side of the fam­ily or they are hav­ing friends over.

I don’t want to waste any more of my time on peo­ple who have no other use for me, and this up­sets my hus­band no end. But, An­nie, it’s sim­ply not fair. I am en­ti­tled to some re­spect. Why do th­ese women think I owe them ev­ery­thing, but they never re­cip­ro­cate?
