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.

Feminism gone too far.

As a mum and grandmother I have seen lots of changes in this wonderful world of ours, some good some bad.
I never was and never will be a feminist, of course  I can only say that because I am female.
No doubt I will get abuse from the feminist movement, so need to hang on tight.
I wrote before on the fact that feminism has gone to far, the pendulum has swung far too far.
Many feminists like to hide beneath equal rights, equal pay etc, but that has nothing to do with the feminist movement of modern times.
Feminists belittle men in any way they can, they are politically strong in lobbying government on family issues, apparently it is not necessary for men to be involved in bringing up their family, in fact children flourish without dad in their lives, not quite sure how the children got here in the first place, but hey, a minor detail.
Men are portrayed as 'bad' as 'dangerous' and the media love it, if you try and speak up about it no-one listens,of course men can't say it, it has to come from women, we have to start shouting out as loud as feminists.
If you happen to be a son of a feminist how on earth do you find your role do you even have one anymore?
If you read some of the things that are written on a well known website for women, you will not believe the apparent 'hatred' some voice about men.
I spent my working life in many education staff rooms, and it was a constant babble of women being as disrespectful as they possibly could about the men in their lives.
This should be about equality, true equality is just that. Everyone being equal, not one being any better than anyone else.
All men and women should be doing what is right for their children and putting them first.
As a women I am so ashamed at some of the things I hear, see and read this world is in a very troubled state we must hang on to what is real, families working together, respecting each other if things go wrong in a relationship, and they do and always will ,we have to treat each other equally, both men and women are of equal value, sons and daughters are of equal value and grandfathers and grandmothers are of equal value as well.
For me feminism is doing as all a disservice in all walks of life, its time to stop the rot.
