- my daughter had a sweet 16 party for family and friends. her grandparents did not give her a gift - they own 5 houses and are fairly wealthy - i am not sure how to approach this topic - how do I talk to the grandparents - this is my mother and father. they were included in the party and had a separate candle - please any advise would help - is this normal behavior?

Was this your daughters actual birthday? If not, maybe they were thinking of giving it to her on the actual day?

Have the grandparents always given your daughter gifts for birthdays / holidays ? Is this act totally out of character for them, or do they do "weird" stuff like that ??

A bit more info. would be helpful....Thanks!
