    It sounds like the parents were and are not very good parents and are selfish people

    Upset but not surprised I guess, given the history of abuse. In a normal, healthy parent/child relationship I wouldn't expect that the parent should feel obligated to give their child money, but in this case as a PP said it would be like another slap in the face, reinforcing a toxic relationship.

    I would be upset. But not so much about this one incident, it would be a cumulative thing and it would be a case of this last thing bringing all the other hurts to the foreground again.

    If they'd been wonderful parents then I wouldn't give the money a second thought and would just be happy for them and think, 'they deserve it, I hope they spoil themselves for a change'. But given the history - yes, I'd be upset that once again they appear to not care.

    Going against the grain here and saying that no I wouldn't be upset in that situation. I don't expect anything from my parents and if the person who gave them the inheritance felt strongly enough about it they would have listed me as a beneficiary in the first place.

    Probably less upset and more "gee no surprise there" type irritation.
    My parents (mainly mother) was horrendously verbally/emotionally/mentally abusive. Not really physical. But if she offered money to me she gained from an inheritance I think I would rather throw it back in her face. I would figure she was up to something because giving money was so out of character.
