I sent my grandson several presents for Christmas. He is mentally challenged and is speech delayed. I mailed the gifts to my daughter and called her to ask her if she had received the package. She told me that she got the box and that she let my grandson open the package. She was busy putting a brand new kitchen table together. She asked him what was in the box and he said that they were shirts and ran upstairs. I asked her if she saw them and she said, no and she also said she doesn't know where he put them.
I calmly explained to her that the package contained a note as well as a gift from my sister in law. I also hoped that she find the shirts, because they are long sleeve and I enclosed a receipt for her to exchange.
I am upset because I have had two conversations over the phone with her about this and she has never thanked me nor has she found the box with the shirts and present from my sister in law.
I don't know how to approach this problem. She wasn't raised that way. She is 33 and very self centered and hates it when I give her advice. I would appreciate hearing your thoughts about this.
