What Every Grandparent Should Know
by Josef Strong
As a grandparent of six grandchildren, I can tell you for sure that building a relationship with my grandchildren is a lifetime privilege.
As grandchildren grow, the principles of the relationship remain , but the role of the grandparents in the lives of their grandchildren changes. Be sure to enjoy every phase!
Grand Parental Control and Safety of the Grandchildren
All children need to be warned about the limits and must learn to respect boundaries. Grandparents can help grandkids to understand the life limits and boundaries.
When an activity begins you, as a grandparent, must be clear about your expectations. Then you and the grandchild can enjoy the event and stay safe.
When the restrictions are being violated, always remind your grandchildren again about the rules. A very good idea is to write the rules and post them in a visible place. If a rule is violated during your shared activity, ask the child to repeat or read (if the child can do it, of course…) the rules again.
