A friend of mine once said that her parents are undoing all the hardwork she had done. She did her best to ensure the children don’t eat too much sugar, came the grandparents with tons of candies. She did her best to ensure the children don’t snack excessively. Guess who came bearing all the best snacks there is in the supermarket.
I think the grandparents need to also understand the power of the parents and not overstep boundaries. It’s a difficult thing to balance but gosh it’s maddening for the parents who have been trying so hard to establish something just to be undone by the grandparents. Hahaha. It’s funny to watch now cause I don’t have kids yet. I pray for wisdom from now. Hahaha.
Thank you for sharing the insight, Ryan!
