    If she told me specifically NOT to call her, then no...if she doesn't want to see me or talk to me she doesn't need to see my kids. She can't have it both ways, mommy comes with the child.

    Absolutely I would. My relationship with my mother would have nothing to do with her relationship with my child. Would you not allow their father to see them simply because he couldn't stand you?

    My Mother has not seen my daughter since she was 2 weeks old....she is 2 years and 9 months old now. Because of her "issues", I would never allow her around my daughter.

    It depends, if this is just some fight between you and your mom, why should your son lose his grandmother over it? I agree with the person who asked if you'd keep your child from his father if you were fighting with him...its about your child, not you. The only way I wouldn't is if your mom is a bad person, abuses drugs/alchohol, is a detriment to your child kind of thing. And FWIW, assuming it is not the latter, you should make up with your mother, she won't be around forever, life is short. I wish my mom was still here for me to fight AND make up with.

    No way! If she can't treat me her child right and talk to me then I wouldn't want her around my kids? I mean how can a person be a emotionally disconnected parent and be a good grandparent? It doesn't work and I would be thinking, what happens when my kids grow up, will she do the samething all over?
