I live in Michigan with my husband and daughter, while the rest of my family lives in Illinois. My parents got the impression that they are entitled to my daughter coming down to their house for one week every summer to spend the week. We did it for a few years, now its just getting harder and harder due to the fact that she wants to be involved in things and we just don't want to be away from her for that long with so much distance. Also, the fact that they don't continue with the rules that we put in place for her that she has grown accustomed to. How do I tell my parents that she won't be coming down there every summer?
