There are many things in this crazy mixed up world we live in which don't make any sense.

However, none is more absurd than that of severing loving grandparents from our children's lives.

It's bad enough to cut out a parent from a child's life when there's absolutely no need to do so, but to extinguish kind and loving grandparents who have a wealth of love and knowledge to share is must certainly be regarded as a heinous crime of magnitude proportion.

To allow this to happen because of some vindictive or psychologically disturbed parent/s, right through to inadequate systems that are open to abuse is a sad day indeed and another nail in the coffin for Separating families.

To deprive children of generous and caring grandparents who have always been positive in a child's life up until the point of Separation, is possibly one of the greatest harms and crimes inflicted upon both children and grandparents today.

The bottom line is families everywhere are being torn apart, with the trend toward Separation growing at an alarming rate. Many children who suffer the loss of the paternal and maternal grandparents and extended family, are in essence being stripped of their natural rights.

Grandpa and Grandma offer vitally important experiences to their young aiding the child's development in so many ways. This connectivity is part of the natural order of things and must not be interfered with if we are to raise healthy adults for the betterment of society.

Nana and Pop provide enormous support and value to a child's life and families alike, and must be allowed to flourish not hindered, unlike many over the past thirty years who have simply been reduced to nothing more than Mr and Mrs Nobody in the lives of our young and innocent. A demeaning slur upon our fore fathers and mothers I must say, who have made our nation what it is today.

People of Australia and the Westernised world had better start kicking up about these atrocities if there is going to be any chance for our children and future generations to have a healthy, wealthy and enriched lives.

There are serious agendas being played out here and it's obvious they are not in the interests of children and families, or so it seems.

Grandparents have a lot to offer children and should be given every chance.

With love, kindness and peace

    To Concerned Father. I absolutely agree with that comment. Grandparents have no right to interfere in their son or daughter family relationship, But I believe is depend of the circumstances. If the grandchild is very attach to grandparents and the "cut off" like you said, affects the child profoundly.What will you do?, are you thinking about your child?.If your child want to see or stay with the grandparents he have no choice?.I understand that depends of child age, but if the child is old enough and can explain his desire,will you be listen?.I know many families suffering under this circumstances and what I saw is that children are the one who suffer most, and I'm thinking where is the "Will of right of the child" or they don't have any.

    I agree that grandparents have a lot to offer kids. But, when those same grandparents feel that they have the right to control what happens and constantly interfere in the marital relationship and family of their daughter/son, and they do not abide by reasonable boundaries - ties must be cut. Over-controlling grandparents can be a huge thorn in a relationship. And, their behavior can possibly cause so much interference that the relationship of their son/daughter could end in divorce because of it - which in-turn, causes extreme amounts of pain and suffering for everyone involved, including the children. So, before you say that ALL grandparents should be able to see their grandchildren - please realize that their are those grandparents out there who do not know when to stop trying to run everyone's life. These grandparents cause a lot more problems than any kind of life advice that may be valuable. In fact, I would question any kind of "advice" they have to offer. The pain and heartache they cause is overwhelming. And, unfortunately, the only way to deal with these kinds of people is often to completely cut off all ties to them. Believe me, I have tried every other kind of way to salvage any kind of relationship. God Bless.

    Thank you for this story Michael. I can certainly relate to what you say as my mother or kids nana has suffered as a result of our separation a few yrs back as we live in another state to my ex, who is now being petty and selfish with holiday time. It's truly awful and I just hope people find a better way so both kids and grandparents don't miss out.

    Just came across this story which reminded me so much of my parents. My brother divorced and hardly saw his kids because his ex simply said no. It broke my parents heart. That was about 3 years ago. They don't talk about it much but I know they're still in pain which also affects the rest of the family. Thank you for the article I really related to it.

    Right on bro. It's a well known fact that most domestic violence is caused by grandparents angry at the fact they're now growing old and decrepid. These people ought to be locked up.
    And a big cheerio to "Gobbler" (so named because of his grotesque turkey wattle) Young, a black robbed terrorist who is in the business of removing children from their grandparents, all the while denying them due legal process. A crook.
    Wonder when the civil war will break out? Any clues anyone? Save Gobbler for me, please.
