Grandparents and extended family

Grandparents and extended family - granddaughter reading to grandfatherGrandparents and other members of an extended family can provide a source of unconditional love, fun and support to their grandchildren. They can also be an enormous help to their children by offering to baby-sit and sometimes take on major caring duties of the grandchildren and offer other practical help.

In my opinion this is a something to avoid happening if at all possible; it seems to me that everyone loses out. Whatever the reason for a breakdown in communications and a loss of contact between grandparents and the grandchildren, coaching may be able to help you formulate strategies to sort out the situation.
