I am a 62 year old grandmother that has raised my first grandson since he was 3 year now he is 19 and still lives with me. I am also raising 3 more grandchildren. One is 12 and I have had him since he was 2 1/2 the other is 10 he was 2 weeks when I got him. My granddaughter is 9 and she was 1 1/2 when I got her. I have no problems with any of my three grandsons but with my granddaughter I don't know what to do? She has no feeling for me nor her brothers. She has never given me a hug or gotten close to me nor her brothers. It seems that no matter what I do she is never happy. But when we go to visit a friend she goes crazy talking, laughing and having a good time. But not at our house. I don't know why she is that way. There are times that on the weekends as soon as she wakes up in the morning we can tell that she is upset just by looking at her face. She will stay in her room all day long and when I call her to come eat she says she is not hungry. There are weekends that she will not eat at all. I have taken her to the doctor and he said not to make her eat that when she gets hungry she will eat. What can I do to make her be lovable like my other grandsons.
