Hi everyone and welcome to Bristol Grandparents Support Group blog. Although we are Bristol based we have grandparents from all over the UK and beyond as members.

It is estimated that over one million children in the UK are denied contact with their grandparents due to family breakdown which may have been caused by divorce/separation, alcohol/drug dependency,domestic violence,bereavement or family feud.
Every child has the right to have contact with their grandparents
if they wish and unless proven unsafe for them to do so. To deny contact from a parent or grandparent has to become as socially unacceptable as drink driving.
I hope to keep you up to date with what is going on in BGSG and I shall continue to campaign for the rights of children to have a loving and meaningful relationship with both parents and their extended family. So please join in as good to hear your views, not just mine!
I also will support via Skype.
There is no membership fee to be part of Bristol Grandparents Support Group.
Esther Rantzen says, " To every grandparent, links of love can never be broken in our hearts."

Please contact during office hours.

Home Alone.

NSPCC leaflet  entitled "Home Alone" a guide for parents on keeping your child safe?
When I read the title I couldn't quite get my head around it!

Also it says "its never worth putting your child's safety or emotional well being at risk."
I would like to know what the views are from the NSPCC on Parental Alienation as that is clearly putting children's emotional well -being at risk?

Interesting definition of neglect,

What is neglect?
"If you fail to meet your child’s basic needs, such as food and warm clothing, fail to respond to your child’s emotional needs or constantly leave your child alone this is known as neglect. Neglect is as serious as other forms of child abuse because the effects can be damaging and long-lasting."

"constantly leave your child alone" CONSTANTLY- is it ok occasionally then?
