Have you ever had a situation with a grandparent that was less than ideal? Perhaps you have questioned whether or not to allow your children to visit a grandparent due to a variety of reasons. I have come in contact with a few people over the years who have questioned whether or not to allow their children to visit grandparents over various topics such as addiction (alcohol or drugs), a grandparent’s unsafe driving, a dirty/unkempt house, a mood disorder, or having a favorite grandchild and not giving other grandchildren as much attention.
I had a situation that arose this year over the holidays in regards to a grandparent, and I decided to find an article that might provide me some guidance. I thought it addressed a few interesting topics and that it was worth sharing.
