Grandparenting:Want to be with my grandchild
2013-05-07
Name: Michelle Ever since I became a grandparent, my daughter-in-law has changed. Her behaviour towards me is quite different. Now she does not want to be near her son. I would like to help her in raising my grandson but she is misunderstanding my efforts.

It is indeed a sad feeling. You must not try to be a parent. As much as you might want to tell your children how to raise your grandkids, it’s not your role. Respect the parenting decisions your children make for your grandkids.It is also important not to overindulge. It’s tempting for grandparents to shower their grandkids with gifts, but check with the child' s parents before you buy more toys.

Hi Michelle, I am very sad to hear your story,. Indeed it must be a terrible feeling for you not to be able to love and pamper your grandson. May be it' s something from your side that may be troubling your daughter-in -law as a result of which she is behaving differently. You must have a defined boundary as your relation is different. you must be a grandparent and not act as a parent. this is the most important thing as it may stifle the relationship. Spending too much time with your grandchild may not be liked by the mother as she also wants to be with her son. My advice would be to look within yourself to find the reason or ask your daughter-in -law for her behavior change.

RE:Problem with my brothers wif attitude
Hello Vikki T
Some girls would be like that only because they do not know the value of relations they every thing must be done according to their wish only. So for such ladies you need to behave according to them only otherwise they would create such homes lacking of happiness only. So take decision accordingly to your family. ... - Megha [View Message]
