Grandparents can provide many benefits for children

Grandparents have a special love and fondness for their grandchildren. And often this fondness is expressed by the giving of presents and treats as well as visits to fun places like the park or a zoo.

And of course, parents can benefit from their children's relationships with their grandparents. Often, grandparents are willing babysitters, which give parents an affordable option when they need some time for themselves.

But grandparents can bring so much more to a child's life. For example, grandparents can help a child understand his or her heritage. A grandparent can tell a child about the family's history and traditions. And they can give these personal history lessons in an exciting, illuminating manner that makes learning fun.

A grandparent can also act as a role model for a child. If the grandparent had an interesting career, say as a nurse, or served in the armed forces, then those experiences could give the child something to aspire to. But simply being a dependable adult caregiver is a role that can mean a great deal to a child.

Yet even though grandparents have so much to offer their grandchildren, sometimes they face obstructions when the child's parents divorce or have other personal difficulties. In such cases, grandparents may have to seek visitation rights just to be able to spend time with the child.

If you are a grandparent who has been blocked from seeing your grandchild, there may be a way to establish a visitation schedule. One viable course of action is to seek the advice and guidance of an experienced Florida family law attorney who understands the legal issues surrounding grandparents' rights. The attorney can assess your situation and help you determine what possible corrective measures can be taken.
