The holidays can be tough on the kids when suddenly the in-laws become outlaws and are forbidden to visit on Christmas Day and in some extreme situations, they are forbidden to give gifts to the kids. The new man in the house, whether stepfather or boyfriend rearranges the holiday traditions to suit himself. Maybe he lets the kids have gifts but only under certain conditions. For example, he may set a price limit, because he doesn't want the kids spoiled or more important he doesn't want to look cheap because he can't or won't indulge them?

Sadly when the extended family is denied access, often that means no gifts may be given even during Christmas. Don't give up, though, instead donate to a charity for kids and have them send the thank you to the kids or family who has become isolated.

The New Mate Can Be A Threat To Grandparent Access

December 3, 2018

Being single parent until the kids grow up can be a lonely place for parents. The problem with developing new relationships as a single parent is the danger imposed upon a child's safety and further destruction of the family unit, especially with extended family members. Grandparents.

The new guy has trouble adjusting to the in-laws because of the reminder that it brings of his new woman's previous relationship. The new guy wants to rule the roost without pesky family intrusion, including both sets of grandparents.

When the non-biological male and sometimes female enter the household changes are on the horizon, the biggest being alienation of grandparents.

If these moms and dads would focus more on their parental responsibility, which is to put their children first, homes would be a safer place and grandparents wouldn't be shut out.

A California man was arrested in May of 2018 for abusing his 10 children ranging in age between 4months and 12 years. He is not the biological father of all of them. The kids were home schooled which why there were no red flags until one of the kids went missing and the mom called the police. The mom has been charged for neglect and the dad for lewd conduct as well as abuse. The children were removed from the home and placed in protective custody.
