Why is it so many grandparents are having to raise their grandchildren? To many ppl out there are just handing their kids over and not raising them theirself. Wth? You had them, be a parent! Quit thinking of yourself! Your parents did their job,(evidently not a great job. But they did it) now you do yours. You owe it to your kids and the grandparents. You want to rip and run and expect the grandparents to take care of your kids. Then come tax time your all about claiming the kids then. Wake up! Be a responsible parent! Your kids need you! They've done nothing wrong. They're kids!

Im not surprised. Most of the ppl I've seen that have the grandparents raise their kids, are just too lazy to do anything. They just want drugs, alcohol, and a check or want to live of someone else's hard earned money.

Isn't it good that grandparents are able and willing to raise their grandchildren.? What would happen to the children if parents aren't able, willing, capable available to raise their on? Better grandparents than strangers or foster . That's my thoughts...

There are some cases where there is no choice but fir the grandparents to raise the kids. But in most cases around here. Its just piece of crap parents. Plain and simple

Maybe you know of such instances where the parent/s is/are not fit or don't care or care more about themselves-but is it wise to put the majority in your term'piece of crap'. You don't know the details-so don't judge everyone by the same cover.

I don't know who posted under mamaw it wasn't this mamaw but like I said I'm raising my grand kids because my daughter is in rehab center learning to speak and walk talk and to remember her name there father died in the accident so I could have let the state have them but why would I these are my flesh and blood yea I'm sure there are people who just don't want to raise there kids and the grandparent s step up and do it but isn't that better then foster homes I just don't think you should judge because you never know what might be going on with someone

My Grandma is really sick right now. Seeing this post really makes me mad. I give anything if my grandma can raise my kids. Parents these days only know how to party, work, or just lay around. Grandparents are more expeirenced.. So let's drop this topic, and hope that my Grandma gets better..
I send all my love to all The Grandparents out there..

Name some of the useless parents you are talking about. Maybe if they get the spotlight put in them. They might wake up and realizes their children need them.

Lets not put names-it only hurts the children. Almost everyone knows of someone who is a grandparent raising grandchildren-for a variety of reasons, so no need for names. Leave the children alone!

Thank god that there's grandparents to raise kids-what would happen to them. I'll tell you foster homes-and most foster parents just do it for money.

My grandmother raised 2 of her grandchildren from birth. there mom was not capable of raising children just laying on her back and making them. as angry as this made the family. we all pulled together and these kids actually got the chance at life they would have never had with there biological mother. These kids are lucky to have grandparents that took them in, it kept them out of the system that so many kids are lost and forgotten in. may god bless all the grandparents who take that responsibility. without them all these kids would be in a far worse situation.
amen

I raise my grandchild because his mother is unable to do it due to health problems, but she does anything she can for him, and they have a good relationship, but if she was able he would be liveing with her.So please dont be so quick to judge people when you dont know the whole storey.May Gods Blessings be with us all.
