Second degree sunburns

So my grandson went to his mother's for the weekend. He came back with second degree burns on his shoulders and arms from the sun. Blisters under blisters. It is so frustrating. My son has worked hard to keep him and his mother on reasonable terms, but it seems like every other weekend "accidents" happen. Like they forget about his food allergies, or she drops him in the bath. The kid is three, and we all want him to have a good relationship with his mother, but her "carelessness" is bordering on neglect. I do not believe in taking a child away from his parent, and she already has to be supervised with him, but it seems like the "supervision" of her family is really not helping.

Sorry, just blowing off steam. I am so mad right now.

Just to give everyone here an update: Children's Aid has stopped visitation with my grandsons mother until they have investigated the issue. My son has met with his lawyer, and is back to court next week to have her visits switched over to supervised by a Children's Aid case worker. Apparently the worker was just fantastic with him. His skin is still very sore, and blistered, but he was given a prescription to help the skin heal.

Thank you all for your kind words of support.

Remember to Always take pictures on the phone and even videotape it on phone for evidence.

Ouch! Poor kid. Definitely time to gather up the evidence of neglect and have him supervised either by your family or a court appointed supervisor. ♥

No baby deserves such neglect. It sounds like the mother has a long history of it. If you go for sole custody, that doesn't mean she cannot visit...your grandbaby, at YOUR house completely supervised.

This is GREAT news! I'm so sorry for your grandson. Pure Aloe Vera Jel directly from the plant will also reduce scars

Believe me, children's aid is very aware with the issues surrounding visitation. My son has tried several times to have visitation supervised at CAS. The judge would only allow it at her aunt's. Hopefully this will make the judge see that A. she is not being surpervised properly and B. this little boy deserves to be in a safe and secure environment at all times. I am hoping one day she grows up and becomes more responsible, but I have a feeling that she will just not bother if she can't have him around her family. Sadly I think her family only wants her around to have access to him. She never had much of a chance with her crappy home life, but that does not excuse her being a horrible mom to our boy.

His dad took him this afternoon, the earliest appointment he can get. He has special antibiotic cream to help with the healing, and yet another letter from his doctor:S

Poor baby. Clearly the supervision needs to be revised greatly. Please take him to the hospital for medical attention if you have not already. Give that baby a kiss.
