    Welcome to GrownUps ange84205. You are so very right; being a grandparent is something really special. My children are all in or near their 50’s now and their children and grandchildren are a constant delight to me and yes, I do worry about the wee ones as well as their parents. Must be something built in with being born a woman 😉

    Unless there is some underlying fact one is concerned about I believe in being “Grandma”. My husband and I reared our family to the best of our ability and I am happy to let them do the same with theirs. Times are different today and much is expected of mothers even to the point of working to bring more money in. Whether for economic reasons or simply wanting more of the ” good life”. Many mums end up with full responsibility for their children’s welfare as marriages are easily broken these days. Having a true picture of the facts and waiting to be asked for help is the safest way to go.

    Once the Experts are involved life can become very difficult for all concerned. So, like the poem says, ” Tread softly, for you tread on my dreams.” I hope your concerns soon are sorted, ange84205

    Good on you ange. Though it may be tough going back to raising a little one as a grandparent you can help the little one experience a stable homelife and hopefully provide the child with a loving adult they can depend on throughout life. Congratulations on being there for your grandchild 😛
