Tell everyone else around them that they love their child/grandchild (regardless if underage or not) and that they do a great job in everything, but then always speak negatively directly to the child to the point where they feel no one anywhere loves them and that they can’t do anything right at all, which ends up being a total blow to any self esteem they have. But no matter how hard they try to gain any respect, the grand/parent refuses to treat them with any ounce of kindness. Why not keep stories straight all around instead of acting two-faced?
I have a friend who is going through this with a relative and it is so heartbreaking to watch her suffer this on top of the very hard life she’s had up to this point, and to make things worse she doesn’t have much of a support system anywhere where she can cry to anyone or vent about what’s going on.
