So if a grandparent was never around when the parent (Mrs.X) was a kid, is a real piece of work, manipulative, a liar and has been bringing the grandchild to places that the parent specifically told them not to, should they be cut out? The situation has gone on for years and the grandparent also bullies and gangs up on the the parent (Mrs.X)with the siblings and tries to assert control on a constant basis. This time, the grandparent was told NOT to bring the child to a disruptive relatives house. She told the child to lie. Both parents expressly banned the relative from seeing the child.

Thank you for your input ChristinS. It's so difficult to deal with such dysfunction especially when the Gparent plays on the emotions of the kid and uses bad things to make them love them rather than being a grandparent.
The grandmothers mother is the very same too. They buy gifts to buy love. They behave like they own our child, are very dangerous with her and disregard everything we say. Our daughter is only 3 so wouldn't understand.
Imagine teaching your grandchild to lie about going somewhere they weren't supposed to be and then saying it is your right. It's baffling. I hate to say it, but after her failing to apologize, we may have no choice.
