[ - ] Is it often a mistake to place children with their grandparents when their own parents are incapable? I saw this story from Orlando where a 12-year-old young man was arrested for attempted murder after trying to shoot a random stranger for being a "faggot" - he was in the legal custody of his grandmother, who was obviously completely incompetent at controlling his behavior. This seems common in the US for some reason - grandma gets custody, has no idea what the kid is doing, and the kid goes off the rails, ending up dead or incarcerated for decades at a young age: 19 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

They seem to be pretty well-controlled in developed nations other than the US, so, that's not really an excuse. Why would you give custody of a violent young man to a clearly senile old lady who has zero chance of influencing his behavior for the better? [ Reply | More ]

That's because of gun control laws in those nations. Without similar laws here it doesn't matter where this boy lives. He can still get his hands on a gun if he really wants to. [ Reply | More ]

A kid doesn't usually end up in the custody of grandparents without some sort of trauma or fucked up childhood. Those conditions are probably conducive to a higher rate of delinquency regardless of the custody arrangements. Would be interesting to see statistics as I doubt the group home/foster care system produces significantly better results. [ Reply | More ]

Sure. However if a kid is truly a psychopath, it's not going to matter who has custody. If we're talking in more general terms about juvenile crime though, it's unlikely most kids fall into that category. [ Reply | More ]

"some sort of trauma or fucked up childhood" the assumption that grandparents can not only compensate for this but are also not responsible for this kind of situation at all is pretty rich. [ Reply | More ]

I didn't say that they could. My point is that there may not be any type of custody arrangement that is a panacea for that kind of background. Ideally both relatives and strangers who foster kids would be much better vetted and supported, but that costs money. [ Reply | More ]

Not a mistake to place kids with grandparents, but probably a mistake to just leave them there without adequate monitoring or support for the grandparents. All else being equal I think kids are better with family, but I agree with pp, if a child ends up in that situation they are probably vulnerable to start with and they shouldn't just be abandoned to the care of whoever.
