Grandparenting:Feeling sad for not having fun with granddaughter
2013-05-07
Name: Soumitra Sen I am a grandmother to a year old granddaughter, the child of my married daughter. I am happy to be with her and have her around. But lately I feel like I am just a nanny to her. I watch her while her parents are at work. I take care of her and since birth, I am with her taking care of all her needs. The problem is that, though I am allowed to care for her, I am not allowed to take her to any places, or have fun experiences with her. When her parents come back, they are with her.

You are lucky to be able to spend time with your granddaughter. You are one of the blessed ones. There are many who are not being able to with their grandchildren. What you are facing may have a reason. There are some parents who are overprotective with their kids and think that no one is good at watching them the way they are, especially outside the home. The thing to do is make the best of what time you have with her.

This is very strange as this behaviour is shown by your daughter. I' ve never heard of parents not wanting the grandparents to do anything fun with the grandkids. Although I understand your desire to share special times with your grandchild, I can promise you that the everyday activities that you do with your granddaughter will be remembered longer than most one-time events. I agree that you must be feeling sad especially after you have agreed to provide child care.

You should tell your brother to talk to his wife about all this and sort things out. If you or someone else tries to talk things can get out if hand and relations can be affected permanently. Let your brother handle it.... - NN [View Message]

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]
