Normal practice here and kids accept it. My MiL who lives with a Swede looks after her grandson when she's in Thailand. But for 6 months of the year the Swede takes her to Sweden and she pays the boys mothers family to look after him during this period. Neither his actual mother or father are prepared to look after him. He accepts it and gets on with life just like all the other kids that stay with grandma whilst the mother works the bar somewhere. We may think it cruel but.................
