How much do you rate the role grandparents play in family life.
Did you know that grandparents in the eyes of the law are regarded as irrelevent persons in grandchildren’s lives.
If your children were made orphans it is not automatic that they will go to their grandparents and could end up in care.
Because grandparents are irrelevent persons they are not permitted if the law says so to contact their grandchildren to make sure they are OK. Children’s charities are stating a huge increase in child abuse in the home and the abuser is protected by law because of the non relevent status of grandparents.
Our group Grandparents Apart Self Help Group Scotland has repeatedly pointed out that cutting costs rather than the welfare of children is the order of the day since social services were told to speed up their service. It is not human beings but commodities they are now working with, dealing with them as cheaply and as quickly as they can… This is achieved by alienating them from their families and adopting them without the consent of their family because it is easier to place a child without family ties. Now to increase the market where children can be turned over the government are recruiting single people and non traditional family people as adopters. We feel by not having traditional family adopters this is increasing the danger to children of the very clever paedophile rings we read about.
