I'm not sure how I would feel. I think I'd be more disappointed than upset. If I was in the situation, I think based on history, I'd expect my parents to be selfish. It sounds like that's all they know how to be.

Less upset and more irritated.

And I would mentally note not to help the parent when they are older and need help. They have done nothing to help you.

Sounds like my dad
Except he 'promised' to share some funds from a sale of a house but as I did not 'need' money at the time he forgot.
And then offered to help pay my bro's wedding then after demanded the money back (apparently it was a 'loan').
So, yes - adult children have the right to be upset. And angry.

It does sound like it is a little bit about the money, given the info about being in certain stage of life where money would make a difference. I wouldnt feel bad as the adult child as i have no entitlement to the money anyway and there shouldn't necessarily be an expectation that money will flow to them from their parents.

I think so. As you said, it's not about the money, but yet another way they've been selfish. I suppose you would always be hopeful that your parents would change and it would hurt every time that doesn't happen.

I think, too, while inheritances aren't something that should be expected, it's hard not to attach emotions to them. I already know that I've deliberately been left out of a very large will (not my parents') and it hurts. I've not done anything wrong, especially given that this person wants to make sure they're still an ******* in death.

I wouldn't be upset about the money. It's their money they made it. It there choice where it goes.
I would be extremely upset if I felt that my parents never made me a priority. If I felt they did care. In saying that it has to be a 2 way street. They need to feel like the kid cares too.
