They have a point. If the grandparents really wanted to see the child, they would make the effort to go see her. I make a point of taking my grandkids out shopping (which they love and their parents hate because I buy them stuff!) or to dinner or a movie at least once a month. And I have one of them over for the weekend almost every week, feeding them things their parents don't.

Maybe there is some reason that the grandparents can only make it there a few times a year.

That is definitely wrong. A child should be involved with the grandparent and get the benefit of getting to know them. Just because the grandparent doesn't come to their house a few times a year doesn't mean that the parents should with hold the child from seeing the grandparent. The relationship between a grandchild and their grandparent is very special and should be allowed to blossom. If need be the parents should take the grandchild over to the grandparents house.
