I have custody of my three year old granddaughter. Her other grandmother lives 2200 miles away and wants overnight visitation. Which I agree with. But the other grandmother has a new boyfriend who lives with her and is just a little more than half her age.
I do not feel that it is healthy for my three year old granddaughter to be in a house with the new live in. The other grandmother has a history of going through a series of live ins.
I hoped that she would ask him to leave while her granddaughter visits. She has not.
It is a horrible role model to be setting for a young girl. I want her to learn the value of long term stable relationships.

I can see and understand where you are coming from but if you are the one and only person that makes the finally decision if your granddaughter can go and stay there for a visit then maybe you should meet this live boyfriend and then make you finally decision. I would also voice how you feel about the whole situation. Also explain to the other grandmother what you want for your granddaughter. Child sock up every single thing they see and seeing grandma with a new boyfriend every time she sees her is not the best thing. I see what is best for granddaughter in mind which is wonderful.

Does she see you with a mate? If so, she'll think it's normal for the other grandmother to have a mate as well. Age means nothing to little ones. However, I am a grandmother and I don't trust any non-relative males with small children. It's just something that my mother instilled in me. I'd have her live in investigated. You can do it online for free. Make sure he's not a pedophile. If you are taking her 2,200 miles to visit then I'd tell her I'm going to stay with the child overnight (with the other grandmother).
