what do you do when your grown children will NOT keep in touch or come for a visit?

I can only give you advice from the opposite side of things. my husband is the grown up child that now doesnt visit his parents. He choses not to call or visit them as they have no interest in his life or child. They NEVER call him and havent visited us in over 2 years. He saw them for christmas but other then that he hasnt seen them since. He has decided that while they cant make any effort with him, then why should he be the only on putting effort in. Relationships no matter who they are with are a two way street and need effort from both parties. My inlaws also ruined our wedding and told everyone that our daughter isnt my husbands, so they have cause a lot of hurt for both my husband and I and none of us deserve that. I have learnt in this stuation that there is always an underlying problem as to why someone isnt visiting someone else.

i would keep calling them, they may not call back or share info with you but if you keep trying they will at least know you care and that the door is still open to them

Do you have any more info you can give? Is there any reason you can think of as to why this is happening?
