I think if the children are in danger with their parents, whether it be neglect or abuse. However, my sons have three sets of grandparents, how would you decide who has "more" rights over them? Also, would that include unborn grandchildren? Could that grandparent force a parent to keep a child they didn't want? I just think if you give too many people rights over one child you take away the parents rights.
But I did not read the other post, so I do not know where the idea stems off of fully, I guess.

I grew up with their extremely abused kids. When the kids grew up and refused to let the monsters see their own kids he went on the roll with this org. They sit as directors on a few grandparents rights counsels and even appeared on Oprah once.
if something happens to one of the parents as in the grandparents child and the other parent is trying to keep the child away from the grandparents then yes they should have a say even more so if that parent is a nut job
Yes I think they have a right to see their grandchildren if.... they are stable people....not loons... My neighbors got awarded their grandchildren for a time because their son and his wife are hoarders... and the children were suffering because of it... When they got the situation under control the courts let the children go back to their parents but the grandparents were awarded visitation rights... Every other weekend and several weeks in the summer.
only if something happened to both parents. or if their child dies and they stil want their grandchild to be a part of their life.
i don't think they should beinvoled in any decision making while both parents are alive.
