If your child was healthy and stable to raise there own child and they came to you and said I am tired of raising my child would you raise your grandchild? I do not think I would take on the roll of as the parent for my child just because they were tired of the job. If my child was sick or dieing yes but just to let them out of their responsibility no thank you.What do you say my lot am I mean or what?

If it was either me take care of the child or the child be put up for adoption, I would raise the child. I would also make my child go through the legalities of making me the legal guardian and relenquishing rights. Before it ever came to that, I would hope that my child would come to me for help and advice on how to raise the child so Icould do my best to help before it went too far.

Hello friend. If my son asks me to help him take care of his son, my grandson, I am sure that I will, but he needs to give me some money to raise my grandson in the first place. I love to raise my grandson when I am retired. By the way, my son is still in his teens. Thank you for the discussion. Take care and enjoy your life.
