Apparently the social services were contacted as someone accused them of mistreating my grandson. I think more neglect than mis treatment as in he went to school dirty and wouldn't eat his lunches because she did put in wonderful foods, but like most children, foods he didn't like and wouldn't eat, plus he has become a little aggressive. The NSPCC were called in over Easter time as my son and his partner literally had a fight. The children were terrified and ran down the road trying to escape. They were brought back and sent to bed. The only thing I can say in my sons partners defence is that she is grieving for her mother who recently passed and I think that was the reason she got drunk. Not that it excuses physical violence.
Yes, we have him every Wednesday evening and every Saturday, if possible we try to get him as much as we can inbetween. The only problem with this is he never wants to go home. He pleads with me to let him stay. He asks when he can come "home" meaning our house. Its heart breaking. Oh and by the way neither the social services nor the NSPCC have taken things any further
Every May half term we take our grandson & my three granddaughters who are my youngest son's children away. Sometimes during the six week summer holidays we are allowed to take him away for 4 or 5 days, but otherwise no
Not that I know of. He is a lovely caring boy, who tries to please every one all the time. He will say what he thinks people want to hear. The only time the real truth comes out is at bedtime when we have a cuddle and talk about what has happened during the day, that I find out how he really feels and what is going on. I know he is not physically abused but he is certainly mentally abused. Poor little lamb just struggles on. His behaviour in school has deteriorated because his teacher has pulled me aside on several occasions (I do voluntary work round the school) and we both agree this is attention seeking. But I have never involved the school in what is going on, but they are putting two and two together by themselves
For what exactly?
No one has said anything to me and I do not want to ask because they are going to start asking questions and I will be caught between a rock and a hard place. The school would not lie about where they got their info from and I could be stopped from seeing Frankie all together
