    Each to their own. My sister and BIL have a similar arrangement with my folks. My nephew will go to my parents place every Friday after daycare. He will usually go home Saturday afternoon/evening. Sometimes he'll stay til Sunday if my sister has to work Saturday afternoon/night. It works for them. Doesn't mean my sister and BIL love him any less. My folks love having my nephew there every weekend and my nephew loves spending time with them. Grandad is basically his favourite person in the world. (Some days I reckon Grandad even trumps mum and dad!) FWIW Nephew will soon be 4 and this has been their arrangement for just over 2 years.

    I don't get it. I just don't. It's so far from my style of parenting. But that ok. We don't all parent the same. Hell lot of hub wouldn't agree with things I do either.
    In the end if the child is with someone that loves him and he is safe and well. He/she will thrive.

    Whatever works for other people doesn't bother me. By the sounds of it, her and her husband would hardly see each other during the week so are probably in need of quality time by the end of the week.

    Personally it sounds like my worst nightmare. I couldn't leave ds overnight with the grandparents.

    Who cares what they do!
    There is a regular hubber here (I can't remember who!) whose signature quote is something like 'Life is ours. We live it our way'. And it's so spot on here. I spent years subconsciously imposing my belief system onto others but am slowly realising that the richness of others' life experiences and how they have come to be who they are, means that my values may well be entirely meaningless to them!

    We know nothing, nothing at all about the detail of this family's life and what truly is behind their decision to involve their child's grandmother in this way. It's a story that plays out time and time again both here on the hub and in real life. We have no right to conclude that their decision is (for example) morally wrong or distasteful as we have zero capacity to stand in their shoes.

    Beautifully said!
    last time I checked, I wasn't in the entertainment industry, my husband wasn't a dance teacher and we didn't have a 2.5 year old!
    I saw bits of this on FB and think it's sad how much we attack without knowing - but hello to the internet!
    Not my circus. Not my monkey.

    I don't know much about their arrangement but I assume that the little girl would have a wonderful bond with her Grandma, I imagine the grandma enjoys the time and would speak up if need be.

    It is also possible that being as high profile as she is, Rachel probably has a lot of engagements so this arrangement may be the one that provides more stability for the little one.

    As someone whose child doesn't have a grandparent I'm a little bit jealous that they have such wonderful family support.

    Is she really high profile? I have absolutely no idea who she is and even after reading her wiki page still don't have a clue who she is.

    Whaddya mean? It's a great BH sport to vigorously judge/defend/attack posters while likely only knowing a small percentage of the facts.
