Does she have rights to see them? The relationship between my mother and I is very destructive. She has assaulted me on two occasions over the past 4 years. Now my wife and I don't want anything to do with her. When I was a teenager (15 years ago) she claimed to be bi-polar and my brothers and I feel like she needs to be on her medication again. She got off of medication after becoming a Christian; supposedly getting control of her mental issues. But they're back in my opinion. Now I don't want my kids to be exposed to her violent mood swings. I would prefer to have nothing to do with her but she says that she has rights to see her grandchildren. I want to tell her that if she wants to see them then she can come to my house;I don't want her taking them to her house. We live 5 minutes part.
