GrandparentsThere is truth to the saying, “it takes a village to raise a child.” Fostering healthy relationships with grandparents and other extended family members is important to a child's sense of well-being and their place in this world. They can provide stability, support, wisdom and experience with the children.
When a relationship between parents breaks down, sometimes this important bond between children and their grandparents suffers as well. Particularly in cases where there are custody disputes between the parents or when one parent remarries, grandparents can find themselves denied access to see or communicate with their grandchildren. In other situations, grandparents may get involved in gaining custody of the grandchildren themselves.
