Having been raised as a JW, racism was something that was never promoted. I now have a 9 year old that has been visiting her biological grandmother and my ex-wife. It is my child because I adopted her. Neither of us are JWs anymore. :-)
The child goes on a monthly basis for a few hours or in some cases a weekend sleepover. This has gone on for at least 5 years.
The child's grandmother recently got remarried about 6 months ago.
On the past two, 4 hour visits, our child has come home repeating racist comments from her new husband.
When I confronted them about it, and asked for the sake of family peace, that they not talk about controversial topics for the time children was there.
Her response was, "it's their house and they can say or do whatever they want. She says it's just a different point of view than mine and I should allow them to be exposed to different viewpoints."
I am interested in what you would do in this situation?
Is racism wrong or is it a valid concept to consider for a 9 year old?
I'm inclined to cut off the visitations, but would like to hear some opinions from this forum. Thanks for reading!
