    While I respect Arteburn and co. I’ve gotta tell ya, Arteburn had the most irresponsible reply in response to the sixth and final question. Here’s an elderly couple wondering why they don’t get to see the grandkids. Witholding the grandkids is not what anyone wants to see..but what we don’t know is have gramps and grams trampled boundaries?? have gramps and grams offended their son’s daughter repeatedly and without a request for forgiveness. Mr. Arteburn be very careful putting the “fix it or else” on the have know idea how the whole story looks and to fire off a response like that is really irresponsible. Sorry my tone’s a little harsh, this one hits a little close to home.

    I agree with Bill. I was surprised to see you jump to that answer without getting further information. Your response actually assumed what the questioners did – that the daughter-in-law was problematic…what if the grandparents are problematic and the son is doing the right thing by supporting his wife (ya know…all that leaving and cleaving stuff). I suspect conclusions were drawn because time was running out.
