Grandpa... - November 30th 2009, 06:11 AM

This seemed like the best forum for this but I dunno. About three years ago my grandpa went to prison for molesting a boy he was supposed to be tutoring. I could hardly stand to be around my grandpa before he was arrested and he is up for parole in a couple months. I am terrified that he will get out and I will have to see him again. He never did anything to me but what he did to that boy was sick. After my grandma left him a couple years before the arrest my mom had to help him with everything because he didnt know how to take care of bills etc. I am afraid he will turn to her again if he gets out and he will just show up at our door one day and I won't know what to do. Ever fiber of my being but one wants to tear into him like there is no tomorrow but that one part of me knows I cant. What do I do here?

Hi there,

I understand how difficult a situation you're in right now. It's tough to know what to do when you feel so strongly about someone's past actions. There is always the possibility that he might turn to your mother for help, and it is up to her whether she wants to help him or not.

What I suggest you do is talk to your mom. Since your grandpa could go to her for help, then she needs to know exactly how you feel about the situation. Let her know that you are uncomfortable with the thought of him showing up at your house and you aren't ready to see him. Maybe if she does decide to help him, then she can do it at his house and then not drop by your house at all.

It will probably help to talk this through with your mom. She might be thinking about the same things right now and may be just as uncomfortable as you are. Having someone to discuss it with will help get rid of the stress.

Take care.

The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?
