Help, My Family Don’t Bother With My Child. What Can I Do?

When it comes to family, you don’t want just anyone bothering or negatively influencing your child.

You need to set some boundaries and make it known that they are not welcome around your child if they cannot be respectful and kind. This is especially important if there is already tension or drama, which may already be why they want nothing to do with your child.

I’ve put together this guide based on the experience a friend of mine had with her family. In the end, she realized her family members were very busy with their own lives, and simply raising the issue made her family aware and almost immediately resolved it.

If your family doesn’t bother with your child, here is my guide.

Why Do My Family Not Bother With My Child?

There could be several reasons a family wouldn’t bother with your child. For example, maybe the family disagrees with how you raise your child, or they disapprove of your parenting style.

They may also feel they are not welcome around your child if they cannot be respectful and kind. If there is tension or drama within the family, it’s best to keep your child away from it.

It’s also important to consider that some family members may not have the time or resources to help take care of your child.

Whatever the reason, it’s essential that you set some boundaries and make it known that unless they improve and show love and care towards your child, they are not welcome to interact with them.

Family Doesn’t Bother With Your Child? Here Is My Guide

If family members do not seem to bother with your child, there are a few things that you can do.

One option is to seek help from a professional.

There are a few reasons why seeking help from a professional may be a good idea. First, family members are often quite emotional when caring for their loved ones. This can make it challenging to make clear, rational decisions.

Second, family members may not have the necessary training or experience to provide the appropriate level of care. Finally, family members may conflict with each other, which can further complicate the situation.

If family members refuse to take care of their family, it is essential to remember that the child is not responsible for this. The child did not choose their family and should not have to suffer because of family members’ decisions. Many resources are available to help families, and it is important to seek out help for the child.

Reach out to family members or friends who may be willing to help.

It can be incredibly frustrating when family members refuse to take care of them. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to get family members to take care of their family members, especially if they’re stubborn.

However, there may be family members that are not so stubborn. Instead, reach out to those and open up discussions. These family members might want to be involved, and they may also want to help bring the other family members in.

As for friends, I hope you have some that you can rely on when times get tough.

Stay positive, and focus on the good aspects of your situation.

It can be difficult to stay positive when you’re going through a tough situation. But staying positive is crucial because it will help you get through the tough times.

When it comes to family members who are not bothering your child, staying positive and focusing on the good aspects of your situation is essential.

Spend some time writing down all the good things about your situation, and reflect on those.

Remember, you’re not alone. Other families are likely to be going through the same thing as you.

Reach out to support groups or online communities.

The family members who don’t want to spend time with your child might be behaving in a way they have been taught from their own childhood experiences. They may have been a victim of this in the past, which has become a learned behavior.

They might think that it’s not their responsibility to know or take care of your child, or they might bother because they’re busy with their own lives.

Reaching out to support groups or online communities can help you connect with other parents who are in the same situation as you are. You can share your experiences and advice, and you can also find support from others who are going through the same thing.

Talking to family members will help

If you can, talk to your family members about why they don’t want to take care of your child.

Family members often don’t bother their members because of unresolved issues. By talking to them, you may be able to resolve these issues and get them more involved in taking care of your child.

Stay hopeful, and remember that things can change.

Even though family members refusing to take care of or even bother their family members can be incredibly frustrating, staying hopeful is important. Remember that things can change, and family members can come around.

I’ve said it a few times in this post, but it is important to get to the route of the problem. So why don’t they bother?

Finding this out may cause further conflict, so it is worth asking another, friendlier family member to intervene and mediate.

It’s also important to remember that you’re not alone. Countless other parents are in the same boat, and resources are available to help you.


The family is often the first place people turn to when they need help. However, family members are sometimes quite stubborn and refuse to care for their family members. This can be a difficult situation for family members who need help.

Ultimately, your family is missing out on seeing your child grow and develop into the awesome human being you are raising. If you want your family members to be more interactive, then communication is the only way forward.

As I said above, talk to your family. If they don’t want to listen, find someone who can mediate. During this time, seek out others who might be in the same position as you and your child.

Most of all – stay positive!
