Grandparents’ Rights on Family Matters

Sometimes it’s hard to understand why grandparents feel so strong about their grandchildren but once you have grandchildren of your own you will understand. Grandparents raising grandchildren¬† are a growing number in society so they have to be involved in family matters.

    All children need legal rights of access to their inheirted family groups to ensure them a safe haven in case of divorce or death of a parent.

    Some grandparents have to be involved while others are complete strangers to their grandchildren. What used to be a problem of divorced families has manifested itself into intact families as well. A controlling parent finds an excuse to cause a family rift and use a ridiculous argument as a basis to alienate children from their grandparents and other family members. Within these intact families there is an imbalance of power and the children and the grandparents suffer the consquences.

    Governments need to step in and put a stop to this nonsense by initating laws to ensure children rights of access to their groups of people. When an order is brought to the courts attention; an intervention should occur with forced mediation services for the adults and a childrens lawyer for the child.

    These cases should be kept out of the court room as often as possible because court rooms add more animosity between the parties and it is not a good solution for the children.

    Jane, I think that what you suggest could be a good solution in most cases. It is often a power struggle for certain people and it shouldn’t be. They are using their children to inflict pain and sadness on someone.
