GRANDPARENTS: TO LOVE OR TO HATE

Let’s face it, who doesn’t love the convenience of dropping our kids at their grands for that rare Date Night? But when we come to pick them up and they are literally bouncing off the walls, with chocolate stains on their overalls, evidence of their sugar-high crimes, we might not be all that grateful. 

With the year-end school holidays coming into full swing, we foresee lots of family time. In light of this, I thought it might be useful to write some of the lessons I’m learning about handling both my kid and her grandparents. I must tell you though, that some of these remain completely idealistic, but we are trying nonetheless.
