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.

So you don't believe in Parental Alienation?

Just when I think I have heard it all, I realise I haven't.
When we talk about PA, people really don't get it. They don't realise how destructive it is, how it harms our children/grandchildren in some cases irrecoverably.
The public must be made aware that PA is child abuse, no flowering up, no excuses say it like it is.
Today I had an email that just makes me despair and wonder how on earth a once loving parent can stoop to this level.

A Dad who sent his child Christmas presents has just received a letter of thanks from his 10 year old.
You may be thinking ,"Oh at least he heard from him." Read on.
The letter started-

Dear Mr ……………,

Yes you have read that correctly, a son writing to his Dad- Dear Mr…………

Even as I write this it makes me cry, to the Dad and his Mum it is beyond words.

Having worked with children for over 15 years, I know that a 10 year old would not write like that, he has been told to write like that.

So as said in that same email, Parental Alienation is alive and well in ………….
God help us.
