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.

Women's Aid gender bias lessons for 4 year olds.

Should Women's Aid be involved in producing lesson plan for reception children, children who are 4 years old, on Domestic Violence?
You can read the publication here :Expect Respect Education toolkit - Women's Aid
I taught PSHE to ket stage 1 and 2 children and my concern is that this is totally gender bias, and appears to be portraying men as being dangerous.
It says that most indents reported as with males being perpetrators, we all know that women can be equally abusive.
What message is this giving out to little children?
What will be the effect on the boys?
In my experience PSHE lessons must be taught sensitively and always with equality.
