We as parents and grandparents, but sometimes our children go off in the work direction, and then they try to use the child as a pawn. We raise our grandchildren and the the older children, get mad at us, and they won't let us see our grandchildren. I raised my granddaughter until almost three, and my son is listen to his strange 30 year old married girl friend. He just turned 22, in May. We need the laws in the state of Florida changed, so we can see our grandchildren.

      It's not right for any parents to use their children as a pawn.

      We raised and loved our children and because of some perceived injustice, we can no longer see our precious grandchildren. They are holding our grandchildren hostage. Also, if something happens to our child and the custodial parent has them again, we can't see and love our grandchildren. Always remember "There are never too many people to love a child". Please help.

      Too often grandparents help in the raising of the grandchild & the adult children use that child as a pawn to strike out at their parents for whatever reason. If the grandparent is a danger to the child, then by all means they should not be allowed to see the child. However, if they are not a danger the should be allowed in the child's life, it is a huge benefit to the child to have as many loving family members around as possible. How can we be sure the child is well cared for & safe if we cannot visit the child? Are we as grandparents not part of the village necessary to raise a child? Especially in todays society when the are either members of single parent households or when both parents work. Who is better to care for these children than the grandparents who love them above all? Unless of course the grandparents are a danger to the child.
