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.

Debate on why Parental Alienation occurs in the first place.

Ok we all know that Parental Alienation is fact and child abuse, and we need to raise public awareness on the subject.
What I want to do is to open up a debate on why do we think it happens in the first place?
There are groups all over the place trying hard to get it out there so its time to work together.
Presumably when a child is born it is as a result of a loving relationship between two people, so what happens to cause this to become so revengeful and bitter when things go wrong?
The other situation is when alienation happens because your own child alienates you from themselves and the children.
Again, we ALL make mistakes ,we say and do things that maybe we shouldn't but how does a falling out become so evil?
Its over to you, to get this debate going, I can't do it on my own.
I know it can be difficult but mud slinging etc is not helpful, many eminent people come out with all sorts of reasons why, but we are the people it is happening to, we are the experts.
