If your children have great, loving, caring and attentive grandparents that are in their lives, consider yourself very lucky. That’s because good grandmothers and grandfathers are hard to find. The bond that many grandparents build with their grandchildren is usually unbreakable. It’s the kind of relationship that your children might cherish more than others, just because grandparents do such a wonderful job of nurturing and supporting their kiddos. Grandparents are very important people in young children’s lives.
In fact, they are more likely to treat their grandkids differently than they treated you as a child. That’s because they no longer have the pressure of teaching anyone the difference between wrong and right and stressing out about their children and every decision they make throughout their lives. Instead, they move into a more comfortable role that is mostly full of love. That’s right. There are no rules. No restrictions. Just a good, healthy dose of love.
With that being said, more and more parents are realizing that there’s no reason to get in the way of a grandparent and grandchild relationship. As a matter of fact, there’s no reason why you should be upset whenever a grandparent insists on spoiling his or her grandchild, too. Here’s why.
