I was on my honey moon the first 2 weeks of December and didn’t invite my parents to my wedding. It was a very small weeding and I did not want them there, somethhing I feel very guilty about since they are my parents after all, you know? During our honey moon we decided to leave our daughter with my mother in law who is very respectful about the way we parent our daughter and consider our daughters feelings and personality. On the other side my parents are neglectful and very religious to the point they don’t care about my daughter needs because they are “busy”, so naturally I decided to protect my daughter and limit the amount she spends with them and I am present all the time when she spends time with them because I don’t want my daughter to think this is a normal behavior she should put up to. I know I’m protecting my daughter but I feel guilty for not letting them spend time with her. My mother invited us on Christmas day but I told her an excuse, as always, and they wanted to spend time with my daughter while we were on our honey moon but my husband told my mother in law not to let them have her if the stop by her house. My mother expect all my sisters and brother to be a happy family after everything they done in our childhood. I don’t want to be resentful but they haven’t changed very much. There is so much pain and painful memories that I want my daughter to stay away from.
