Q & A – I suspect a grandparent playing mind games with their grandchild?

If a grandparent is playing mind games with their grandchild, it can be a very distressing and confusing experience for the grandchild. Mind games can take many forms, such as emotional manipulation, guilt-tripping, or gaslighting, and can have long-lasting effects on a person’s mental health and well-being.

If you are concerned that a grandparent is playing mind games with your grandchild, there are a number of steps that can be taken to protect the grandchild and address the behavior. These include:

  1. Talking to the grandparent: If you feel safe to do so, you may want to try speaking to the grandparent and expressing your concerns. It may be helpful to give specific examples of the behavior that is causing concern, and to explain the impact that it is having on the grandchild.
  2. Setting boundaries: It may be necessary to set clear boundaries with the grandparent about their behavior. This can include limiting contact, setting rules for interactions, and enforcing consequences if the behavior continues.
  3. Seeking professional support: If the grandchild is experiencing significant distress or emotional harm as a result of the grandparent’s behavior, it may be helpful to seek professional support from a therapist or counselor. They can provide support and guidance for the grandchild, and may be able to help them develop coping strategies to deal with the behavior.
  4. Seeking legal advice: In some cases, it may be necessary to seek legal advice to address the behavior. This can include seeking a Non-Molestation Order or a Child Arrangement Order from the court, depending on the specific circumstances.

It is important to prioritize the well-being and safety of the grandchild in this situation, and to seek support from friends, family, or professionals as needed. A solicitor or family law specialist can provide advice and guidance on the legal options available, and can help you take steps to protect the grandchild from harm.
