Why is it some grandparents can't see the role they play in their kids lives? They enable their kids to be the irresponsible adults that they are and then wonder why their kids are the way they are.And I've heard so many times ' they wasn't raised that way'!! Well , evidently they was !!! So now when you should be retiring and enjoying your life you are now raising your grandkids ' that way'!

Believe me I completely understand. My daughters grandparents raised 2 kids who are completely worthless, 1 who is 30 & still lives at home. The other just moved out a few years ago n he's few years older than the one living at home now. They Allow my daughter to do whatever she wants. Kick, hit, spit, etc to whoever she wants. they think its real cute now, but im sorry but its NOT! do they not see how bad that makes them look?? my daughter spitting in ur face in public. Wow. I bet ppl envy u! ha! she dont act like that with me, she knows better.
But if they can't see by their 30 yr old son living With them that they don't know how to raise a child I dunno what else would. Sad thing is, they think their "high in mighty" in this sh*** hole of a town!

When you are on the outside seeing the mistakes these grandparents are making it is frustrating trying to get them to see what they are doing. And what's bad too is some of the grandkids are teenage girls not on any kind of birth control. Which means the cycle will continue on.

Sure I do. The difference is I think it's their business if they choose to raise their grandchildren or if they wish to retire. Not some whiney, snot nose who has issues with what other people do with their lives even in their retirement years. There is no law that when a female hits a certain age she must go on birth control, just because there are loose disease carrying young girls out there does not mean they are all that way. Very shallow minded to group people together like that based on gender, age, or who is raising them.

You are exactly right, that's what I was trying to sum up in a few words. It's just so frustrating to see someone that you care for being taking advantage of by his adult children and now his grandchildren have that learned behavior and are doing the same thing .

men spread disease not women usually. If we want to play on stereotypes let's talk about your whiskers and pankcakes.

You are a shining example of Gallia's main problem. Obviously there's not much happening in your world, so you become "concerned" about other people, people who have every right to do as they please. Did they not ask you how you felt about it? Maybe that's because it isn't your business, fool.

This is the gene pool that you CHOSE to go swimming in, so who is really at fault here? I do not understand people like you. You chose to have this man's child. He was more than likely just about the same guy he is now and so our his parents, yet you still had to be with this man. Yet, now you are complaining about who they are, how they treat their children, and now their grandchildren, wow Einstein didn't you see this coming? Geesh!
