Not Inviting a Family Member to Easter Dinner

by C.R. M.
(Seminole, FL)

I have cut off my parents and my aunt because she did not see things the same way as me. I have cut off my grandchildren from their grandparents because I am mad at my mother. I had an Easter dinner for the family consisting of my mothers sisters, brothers and their families. I did not invite my cousin (son of the Aunt I will not talk to) even though he never got involved and did nothing wrong. Someone mentioned to me that maybe I should not have done that. Was it wrong?

Seems like a lot of hostility between you and your family. At the end of the day, it is your decision who you invite and do not invite to your affairs. The questions on the table, however, is whether the differences between you and your family are so egregious that it is worth isolating you and your children from your family? That is a question only you can answer.

Good luck,
