  - The welfare of the child should be the first priority, IMO. I understand  alsame   Oct-22-09 03:48 PM   #7 
  - the welfare of the child does not trump  mitchtv   Oct-22-09 03:54 PM   #18

        - Well, we all know how orderly and serene life in the Third Reich was.  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 04:25 PM   #62 
  - I think the 6 year old should be enlisted in the military.  Barack_America   Oct-22-09 03:49 PM   #8 
  - and she'd have health care!  ChairmanAgnostic   Oct-22-09 03:49 PM   #11 
  - A progressive solution all around!  Barack_America   Oct-22-09 04:11 PM   #39 
  - Hell, she's a "useless eater" and a member of the "surplus population"  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 03:50 PM   #12 
  - I think the best thing to do is let the child stay and keep the house on the market.  LynneSin   Oct-22-09 03:50 PM   #13 
  - But that would require a degree of common sense that most Pharisees lack.  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 03:52 PM   #14 
  - +1  SammyWinstonJack   Oct-22-09 03:53 PM   #17 
  - So this is some sort of retirement community?  WriteDown   Oct-22-09 03:58 PM   #21 
  - I'd hate to be the grandchild of the other seniors in that complex.  Critters2   Oct-22-09 04:10 PM   #37 
  - The perfect excuse to not visit your grandparents.  Barack_America   Oct-22-09 04:19 PM   #55 
  - You're incorrect, she does have other living relatives, her own mother  tammywammy   Oct-22-09 04:14 PM   #48 
     - Define "not in a position to actually raise her daughter"  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 04:16 PM   #50 
     - Apparently incapable  tammywammy   Oct-22-09 04:22 PM   #58 
     - So foster care or the druggie mom who has her other sibs packed away elsewhere?  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 04:24 PM   #61 
        - I bet the concern isn't about the child but the mother trying to visit the child  LynneSin   Oct-22-09 04:32 PM   #65 
        - Possibly, I believe i read that they've thrown the daughter out and she's no longer even welcome at  tammywammy   Oct-22-09 04:34 PM   #69 
        - I dunno  tammywammy   Oct-22-09 04:32 PM   #67

  - nothing new here  mitchtv   Oct-22-09 03:52 PM   #15

  - Agreed, they should move out.  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 03:55 PM   #20 
  - apparently the Grands have had years  mitchtv   Oct-22-09 03:58 PM   #23 
  - Well that excuses everything then.  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 04:00 PM   #28 
  - I don't think anyone perceives the grandparents as victims.  Mariana   Oct-22-09 11:03 PM   #126 
  - There HAS been compromise. The HOA has given them YEARS to resolve the situation.  MercutioATC   Oct-22-09 04:00 PM   #27 
     - No, but it's the child's issue to suffer through.  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 04:03 PM   #32 
     - Like I said, it's unfortunate.  MercutioATC   Oct-22-09 04:08 PM   #34 
     - Considering the state of foster care in this country,  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 04:11 PM   #38 
        - My point remains.  MercutioATC   Oct-22-09 04:14 PM   #47 
     - then if the child is suffering, talk to her grandparents....  Scout   Oct-22-09 04:12 PM   #40 
     - Then fine the grandparents, or buy them out.  Barack_America   Oct-22-09 04:08 PM   #35 
        - so tell her grandparents to get busy investigating the thousands of potential solutions n/t  Scout   Oct-22-09 04:13 PM   #43 
        - They can't. The HOA's actions are governed by the association's covenant.  MercutioATC   Oct-22-09 04:13 PM   #44 
           - Ok, I'll bite.  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 04:17 PM   #52 
              - The grandparents? I don't know their financial situation.  MercutioATC   Oct-22-09 04:23 PM   #60 
                 - They could get a place for $5-600 a month?  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 04:26 PM   #64 
                    - It took me 5 minutes to find quite a few within 10 miles of their currrent home.  MercutioATC   Oct-22-09 04:33 PM   #68 
  - I lived in a community a few years back that would not allow you..  WriteDown   Oct-22-09 04:00 PM   #26 
  - "...you might as well tear the whole agreement up..."  Critters2   Oct-22-09 04:09 PM   #36 
     - Many people oppose dictatorship...  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 04:12 PM   #41 
     - and people should abide by the contracts they sign.... n/t  Scout   Oct-22-09 04:13 PM   #45 
        - Well then by all means, we ought not attempt any kind of foreclosure relief.  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 04:15 PM   #49 
        - Absolutely. They should have turned their granddaughter out when she came to them.  Barack_America   Oct-22-09 04:17 PM   #54 
  - I love it when people on here just assume we're all watching the same TV station!  Cronus Protagonist   Oct-22-09 03:58 PM   #22 
  - I apologize.  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 04:01 PM   #30 
  - It's baffling. (nt)  redqueen   Oct-22-09 04:02 PM   #31 
  - Yes, bizarre. In the big picture, sheer nonsense. If they were to outright refuse to...  RKP5637   Oct-22-09 04:06 PM   #33 
  - If they hadn't been taken in by them she would have gone into  jenniferj   Oct-22-09 04:13 PM   #42 
  - Compassion is a virtue often sought for in this world, but rarely found.  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 04:13 PM   #46 
     - Particularly in Florida, for some reason. nt  Barack_America   Oct-22-09 04:16 PM   #51 
     - In the interview the grandmother looks close to the edge...  jenniferj   Oct-22-09 04:39 PM   #74 
     - A few...YEARS?  WriteDown   Oct-22-09 11:30 PM   #127 
     - And found less and less each day I fear... n/t  RKP5637   Oct-22-09 04:44 PM   #77 
  - I didn't realize the mother was alive but engulfed by drug addiction  LynneSin   Oct-22-09 04:34 PM   #70

  - I call it child abuse  winyanstaz   Oct-22-09 04:36 PM   #71 
  - Personally,  TicketyBoo   Oct-22-09 04:38 PM   #73 
  - Very good point.  redqueen   Oct-22-09 04:42 PM   #76 
     - Precisely my point.  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 04:45 PM   #78 
        - Good thanks...  redqueen   Oct-22-09 05:01 PM   #85 
           - Work, School, The usual.  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 05:10 PM   #87 
  - Just my opinion but these kinds of agreements shouldn't be legal.  drm604   Oct-22-09 04:56 PM   #81 
  - Meh, families are a relic of the oppressive patriarchial-capitalist hegemony.  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 04:59 PM   #83 
  - No...they are anti-child....which is the point. nt  Thickasabrick   Oct-22-09 04:59 PM   #84 
  - And it's a bad point. n/t  drm604   Oct-22-09 07:30 PM   #104 
  - yes all bow down to the strait family  mitchtv   Oct-22-09 06:13 PM   #90 
     - Come on now man, really.  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 06:23 PM   #93 
     - Excuse me, but the people who are trying to control who their neighbors are  drm604   Oct-22-09 07:30 PM   #102 
  - What gets me is they're pushing it even though the grandparents have the house on the market.  Pithlet   Oct-22-09 06:16 PM   #91 
  - They've been promising to sell for FIVE YEARS.  TexasObserver   Oct-22-09 06:42 PM   #94 
     - You assume that those other relatives who her siblings are living with are related to her.  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 06:55 PM   #95 
     - True or not, it's not the problem of the Association.  TexasObserver   Oct-22-09 07:02 PM   #96 
        - I fail to see how the HOA comes out a winner in this.  SidneyCarton   Oct-22-09 07:06 PM   #97 
           - They should have sued the grandparents to get them gone 4 years ago.  TexasObserver   Oct-22-09 07:16 PM   #98 
              - Yes, maybe the association should have.  Pithlet   Oct-22-09 07:35 PM   #106 
     - In this market? I absolutely beileve it. Especially in Florida.  Pithlet   Oct-22-09 07:17 PM   #99 
     - They've had FIVE years to sell it.  TexasObserver   Oct-22-09 07:20 PM   #100 
        - Gee, it's too bad they didn't have a crystal ball  Pithlet   Oct-22-09 07:23 PM   #101 
           - It's too bad they've schemed for five years instead of selling.  TexasObserver   Oct-22-09 07:30 PM   #103 
           - Scheming. Yes, in the story you read in bizarro alternate universe maybe.  Pithlet   Oct-22-09 07:38 PM   #107 
              - Please see my post below - I think they are scheming. nt  Thickasabrick   Oct-22-09 07:40 PM   #108 
              - Oh, a comment section? Never mind!  Pithlet   Oct-22-09 07:45 PM   #111 
                 - Look it up on Zillow if you doubt it - they are usually overpriced too. nt  Thickasabrick   Oct-22-09 07:47 PM   #112 
                    - Zillow is notoriously innaccurate.  Pithlet   Oct-22-09 07:56 PM   #114 
                       - Here is the link - I went to the trouble. The last house sold in that  Thickasabrick   Oct-22-09 08:12 PM   #115 
                          - That house must have been a forclosure  Pithlet   Oct-22-09 08:21 PM   #116 
              - This is where your refusing to learn the facts hurts you.  TexasObserver   Oct-22-09 07:43 PM   #110 
                 - I refuse to change my opinion  Pithlet   Oct-22-09 07:53 PM   #113 
           - The Grandfather has medical problems..  jenniferj   Oct-23-09 12:04 PM   #132 
     - +1  Crabby Appleton   Oct-23-09 06:25 AM   #128 
  - New information. Trolling around on other comment sections regarding  Thickasabrick   Oct-22-09 07:35 PM   #105 
  - Thank you. It proves they've never really tried to sell it.  TexasObserver   Oct-22-09 07:40 PM   #109 
     - Agree. They don't want to sell the house and after finding out  Thickasabrick   Oct-22-09 08:37 PM   #117 
        - Then the question really becomes why is the association pushing it, doesn't it?  Pithlet   Oct-22-09 08:41 PM   #118 
           - I never found one house in that neighborhood that sold for over  Thickasabrick   Oct-22-09 08:43 PM   #119 
              - That is pretty weak evidence, there.  Pithlet   Oct-22-09 08:57 PM   #120 
              - I looked it up on ZipRealty  tammywammy   Oct-22-09 09:05 PM   #121 
                 - The interent is funny. Zillow has it valued at around 145,000.  Pithlet   Oct-22-09 09:46 PM   #123 
  - I agree with you but  Bluenorthwest   Oct-22-09 09:28 PM   #122 
  - not to mention the irony  mitchtv   Oct-22-09 10:04 PM   #124 
  - Pug policy no doubt.  lonestarnot   Oct-23-09 09:13 AM   #130 
  - As a former Child Protective Services worker (retired) ...  Maat   Oct-23-09 12:41 PM   #133
