She may have her reasons, but they are not appropriate to completely take his grandkids away.
As a parent, its her right to make that decision. If the grandparent disagrees and can make their case I believe your state will grant them some < parenting time >.
My relationship with her is volatile.
Safe to assume you are not looking for it to improve.
What you are suggesting is nutjobby.
That is a good point. I guess he could retain an attorney and ask for some time with them. He shouldn't have to though. It is evil and cruel to keep a grandparents grandkids out of there life. He has never done them any wrong, and I believe this is all a projection of NJ's NJ mother. They are both alike, she coached and mentored NJ, and is a meddling witch.
I would love for the relationship with NJ to improve, but I don't think it will ever happen. In the last several months I have had to send her 3 R3's for interfering with parenting time, and coaching the kids to call Mr. Wonderful dad. I am 100% certain she suffers from BPD - the symptoms are all there.
She will not trade\move parenting time with the kids in any capacity. Her most concerning move is keeping the kids in extended therapy that started last summer. She said the kids are stressed over having to spend a week away from her at a time. I met with the therapist, about a month ago. There were no red flags at that meeting, but I still sense NJ has an ulterior motive with it. She seems to be on a PAS kick the last 6 months or so.
