My Gs has walked out of the family home as he has been bullied for the past 5 yrs by his mums new husband who has never liked him and picked fault , been quite harsh with discipline and has generally cut him out of the family by ignoring him and putting him down all the time.
When his mum and dad separated he was very upset and took it badly.
It got to the stage where he was scared to go home and you could see the fear in his face and how his manner changed.
I could see the effect this was having and spoke to his mum about it but the answer I got was he chooses not to join in with the family.
My Gs wrist got broke in a so called play game at football where his stepfather told my grandson he might not want to take the goal as “he was going to kick it as hard as he could”
My grandson manned up to him (he was 7 yrs old at the time ) the ball was kicked and his wrist got fractured.
Neither his mum or stepdad took him for an X-ray despite him being in agony all weekend.
This was the start of many things to come.
I spoke with my Gp who advised me to get in touch with social service as I was worried he was being emotionally bullied which was clearly showing .
They shared the information and closed the case saying he come from a nice family home , and after asking my grandson a few questions which he was terrified to tell they closed the case and his mother stopped all contact with my 2 grandchildren.
That was 5 yrs ago, my grandson has since contacted me and we have been meeting secretly for over 18 months.
I don’t like the deceit but he want to see me and I truly have missed him .lastmonth my grandson walked out and went to his dads but as they only live in a small flat there is no room so he has lived here with me and his grandad.
I am now at a loss of where to go from here, I have no problem with him living here even though it is a big responsibility at my age and with my I’ll health.
I would like to bring things out in the open but I am worried about would my grandson be put back into a home where he is emotionally abused for the next few yrs of his childhood.
I value your opinions please.
