Grandparents have very little rights in this country, but many times, they have the burdens of the parents but not the rights. I know of so many suffering grandparents who have been blocked from seeing their grandchildren. It is heartbreaking.
I have a good relationship with my grandchildren, but I feel for those who are not as blessed. There is an organization that may be able to help. GRO is a grandparents' rights organization which helps unite the grandparent with the grandchild.
The relationship between the child and his or grandparent is so essential to good mental and physical health. I have seen divorce, death, and anger split grandparents from their grandchildren. It is unhealthy. I know that not all grandparents are good, but it is good to work through family problems rather than hiding those problems.
If you are in a situation, whereby, you are not able to see your grandchildren, contact GRO, and get some help.
