Re:9/11/11 Is Also Grandparents Day
Interesting Stat's, my friend.
I have always been a bit casual in my relationships with our grandchilden. This is more than convenient behavior, as we now have 23 active young persons in that catagory.
However recently, under circumstance I deeply resent, One divorced daughter has shipped her 14 year old son to us, as she claims to be unable to control his school performance, and she cannot 'afford' to take care of him. She did keep her 10 year old daughter, because the little girl is "so much easier to care for".
The boy is a good kid. He justs needs someone to 'coach' him thru the newness of High School, and help him make good choices for the future. He tends to be distracted easily and lives for his video games and texting, neither of which are anything I admire in the current youth culture. The mother provides us none of the child-support money she receives for the boy from her ex-husband, so we are footing the bill ourselves.
This is NOT a good situation.
I guess it is time for me to get into the "More Active" Grandparents rights group!!
