In the world of children at risk there are adoptive parents and foster parents. Beyond the children, there are their own natural parents to consider. So, if you are raising someone else’s kids . . . maybe the natural parents don’t like you simply because you have their kids and they don’t.
Maybe they don’t agree with your parenting style, they think you are snooty, they don’t like going by your rules and parameters to see their children. Maybe the natural parents sense you could cut them off from seeing their children.
Maybe if you are a foster parent, the natural parents worry you will fight against their getting their kids back.
Maybe either substitute parent just thinks you as the natural parent dress funny.
Bottom line, the substitute parents simply do not like you.
What would you as the natural parent do to improve a situation like this ?
Though it is not my situation, I’ve seen a similar situation up close and personal with my middle sister’s son. It is actually a tragic circumstance where the paternal grandparents gained custody and the paternal grandmother attempted to poison my nephew against our family. A situation that has not resolved itself and sadly – at the moment – he has closed the door to all contact with us.
