Grandparents And Grandchildren
Grandparents and grandchildren are sharing a new relationship once the grandchildren become permanent in the household.One of the hardest things I have ever deal with is having to wonder from day to day if my grandchildren are being taken care of. I think we always hope and pray that our children will do well in life. We hope that they will get good jobs,get married and have children of their own but what happens when things don’t go as planned? We can put blinders on and pretend that things are alright but that doesn’t change anything.
The children of these situations are usually who suffer the most. They want to believe that their lives are normal but when they can’t see food in your refrigerator and began to wonder why they don’t have any. Well what do you say. How do you explain this to a little child? There is no easy way. More and more grandparents are having to check into their grandparent rights because they know that someone needs to be caring for their grandchildren. Sometimes children either don’t know or are afraid to ask,who is suppose to be taking care of me. It is sad but this is an issue that we as grandparents must address because if we don’t maybe no one will. Or maybe no one else knows.
They can call us nosy grandparents or whatever they like but when a child is in danger and you know it,you should speak up. this is probably one of the hardest things as a parent to do is hey,why aren’t you taking care of your children. They usually want to tell you to mind your own business and usually we should but not when it comes to the well being of my grandchildren. Sometimes it’s hard for them to face the fact that they are not taking care of their own children. The reasons usually vary but most of the time I see it being caused by some form of addiction to drugs or alcohol. It may be hard for a parent to except that our child has this problem but it probably will not go away on it’s own. Help them get help.
We have had to take temporary custody of our grandchildren and the hardest thing is how to explain to your grandchildren how anything can be more important to their parents than them. It is very important to know your grandparents rights so you can keep these babies safe until their parents can get the help that they need.
