Not to mention the fact that they often lend much needed assistance to todays busy parents. No doubt, the attachments that form between children and extended family can last a lifetime.
While an infant, the developmental issues are the need for food, sleep, physical contact and visitations so that the infant can recognize faces. During the tender years, the noncustodial parent should have frequent and regular visitations with the child. These periodic visits should be at least two hours in duration and no overnight stays are recommended.
