Ds7 has regular contact with his paternal grandparents. His 'father' went nc when he was 3. Grandparents are nc also.
Grandparents have a photo of DS and 'dad' , when he was newborn, on display in their house.
DS has said he's freaked out by the photo. I'd usually mention it to grandparents but they've just lost a close family member.
Do i mention it, leave it for now or stop him going?

Do you know why it suddenly upsets him or have they only recently put it out?

Fuckedoffmax Sorry your boy has those memories, and surprised that they do have his picture out since they are probably ashamed of him.
Can you go in and "notice" it, and say, that reminds you, ds feels uncomfortable being there, when he sees that picture. Could ds visits take place in a differant room?
