Grandparent Rights in Absence of Child Abuse

Grandparents Should Have Contact With Their Grandchildren for a Balanced Life: 
It is difficult to know where to target my position on this issue, since there is such a diversity in experiences of child abuse. But, if it is determined that the grandparent has no child abuse in his/her past, then there is little chance that they will abuse their grandchildren. In addition, there seems to be an epidemic of unfit parents. My personal close experiences are numerous of mothers emotionally alienated from children. The child is left wanting for affection, from a mother who is not willing or able to give it. In my own situation, this was the case, the child sought mothering from me, but my daughter saw this as a threat and stopped the relationship. Where are the child's rights in this case?
