Childcare arrangements unfair and donít make sense.

We have a granddaughter that we visit regular and she stays over for the day on a regular basis.
The dil does not work which means that we are now unable to visit her or bring granddaughter to our house to play.
However if both don and daughter in law worked we could have her over and stay as much as she wanted. As per new rule.
How is it safer that working parents who are more likely to be in the company of strangers and work colleagues can allow grandparents to child mind bond etc but itís not allowed if one of the parents is not working or unable to as in our case.
My wife feels really upset about this.
Pity the uk government hasnít followed Scotlandís rule.

It's not a decision based on safety, the new rule is to allow for workplaces to keep going rather than workers struggling for child care arrangements. It's to help strike a balance and to reduce interactions between households.

Simple solution:

Employ your DIL as a volunteer for the days you have the GD visiting to do some "task" for you (no need for payment as it is a volunteer)

You are then needed to provide childcare to allow her to do the volunteer work

Simple... these regulations are pretty easy to "loophole"

If she is unable to work perhaps you could be seen as respite?

Someone on our street have gad their grandchildren all the time. Almost Every day through out lockdown and now has 2 out of the three (one back to school). Mum is on maternity leave but its not fair for her to manage 3 children all day! If questioned the answer is Ďwe are child careí 🤷

"Easy to loophole" - is any wonder why we are on the verge of a serious lockdown.

Once again it appears that The Government have failed to consult every Dibb member and tailor the latest guidelines to their specific situation. This is getting crazy now, so many people reporting that they have set ups that the government hasnít consulted them about - itís almost like they are deliberately creating general guidelines to keep the country safe.

It was the same in the Christmas rule of 6 thread. The government hadn't taken into account that the mother in law always hosts a party of 8 & they wouldnít be able to invite great uncle Albert and auntie Anne this year 😂

The idea is not to be fair, but to stop the virus spreading. Someone going out to work needs childcare in order to do so. Your DIL does not need childcare - so she, the child , yourselves and any of your other contacts are that little bit safer because you do not meet up.

Meet fewer people, fewer times, in fewer places.
