    She clearly states that the SO is the manipulator. What did I miss?

    My son, his SO and their grandchild are involved. What I think is happening is that son is being influenced by SO to get rid of us (his only family). I have heard of women whose men alienate them from family but in this case it is the male being brainwashed to do so. The gaslighting is being done by my son at the direction of SO. The therapist picked up on the gaslighting. I never heard the term before.

    To be clear, the child in the picture is your great grandchild?

    My brothers wife went on a campaign to get rid of his family shortly after they married. She would lie to him and say that we said terrible things to her when we didn’t. He believed her. Eventually we didn’t see him for about 20 years until they divorced. I really feel for you.

    My parents barely knew there grandchild from him. Thankfully they had my kids. By the time he came back my dad was dead. We tried so hard to get along with that bitch but in the end she won. I am so sorry this is happening to you.
