I can relate. I have a 12 year old that everyone wants to spend time with because he is quiet and respectful and pretty self sufficient. However, he just recently hit puberty and doesn't want to spend time with any of us uncool adults any more.

But I have a 5 year old who no one seems to want to have anything to do with. He has a slight developmental delay so its like babysitting a 3 year old instead of a 5 year old and he is kind of rambunctious and loud. It is like pulling teeth to get DH's family to help with him at all.

Thank god for friends and my mom.

Maybe you need to have a serious conversation with your parents.
