Dear Carolyn: When my grandson was born, I thought it was the greatest thing, and it probably is. However, he is 8 and his parents told him it is OK to call me by my first name. I do not agree. He has, but for a few times, not called me Grandma.

Carolyn - I think you missed a teaching opportunity. Obviously Grandma values the heritage embodied in a name and she could(should) take the opportunity of the time she has with her grandchild to teach the kid about his heritage. Turn her "hurt" into a positive learning opportunity for the kid. But I agree with you - she may be too self centered to value enlightening her progeny.
