Why Grandparents Are So Important


Having grandparents in my child's life is so important to me! But how do you handle judgment from your parents and in-laws? It's not easy but remember --- you as the parent get to decide how to raise your children. Whether it be wearing green every day or not having any access to media -- you as the parent get to decide.

How do you approach this with them? You can do this by saying, "I so appreciate how you raised me (or how you raised your son) but now that I am a parent, I get to make the call on how to raise my children. I hope that you will respect my wishes as it truly means the world to me to have you in our lives." I have had this conversation with both sets of grandparents, and it is difficult, but transparency and honesty really go a long way. 👴👴👴
