Alienated Grandparents
« on: June 14, 2017, 05:53:04 PM »
Just wanted to mention that today is National Alienated Grandparents Awareness Day in U.S.  I don't have much to say except I'm glad this issue is being brought to the public's attention.  A lot of grandparents are hurting who have been unjustly alienated from their dear grandchildren, and this is a hurt that is generally hidden.

I did not know there was such a day.
The hurt is hidden because we are so embarrassed to be treated in such a way. Nothing hurts worse than seeing all the "good grandparents" out and about with their GC, or visiting someone who's GC are visiting, and GM And GC are so happy to be together. AND, THE VERY WORST is visiting your AC the DIL's parents show up and the GC's act like God came to earth- when they do not act like that when you show up- thanks to DIL. I better go walk my dog-she treats me very good!
