Grandfather hurt by sudden silent treatment
Dear Abby: My two adult granddaughters have rejected me, their doting grandfather. Their father gave me this explanation: "They are uncomfortable with the way you rub their shoulders and necks."
These girls and both parents have misinterpreted my innocent expressions of affection, which haven't changed since the girls were little. The only change is in their perception of my actions.
I am devastated. I asked twice to meet with these family members to discuss their concerns. It has been 3 months; no meeting time has been offered. There has been no contact, and neither girl has called me for any reason this year.
