for starters i dont speak english very good so if i mess up im sorry

so over the weekend my son and his wife and their son came over to visit, while my son and my dil were out at target i cut my grandsons hair, my son was the one who noticed it first and told his wife and she now wont bring the baby over here anymore my son comes over by himself and his excuse is "you gave our son juice and cut his hair with out permission and i told you he cant have juice yet, multiple times"

do we have any rights to see the baby or can they just cut us off just like that? we live in california

Well for one, you are not the parent so follow the parents instructions...id be pissed that you do what I told you not to too. I'm sure they are just angry right now and it will blow over...but no I wouldn't leave my child with my parents if they deliberatly did something I asked them not to.

Um yeah...

I personally would be very upset if my mom cut my daughter's hair without telling me. And giving him juice before he's ready can cause lots of problems. My daughter is 18 months and the doctor still says to only give her a small amount of juice a day.

I don't know if I would keep my daughter from my mom or mother-in-law, but they definitely have every right to do as they please with their son. He is THEIR son, not yours.

I would call and apologize to your dil! You don't get to make those decisions, it isn't our child. You respect their wishes with their child, I can't blame her to be honest, you lost her trust.

Don't you think you were out of place cutting his hair? Especially without his parents permission? Your not the child's mother. Your a grandparent. Learn your place if you want to see him.
