I already have three kids, all boys and they are very close to my mother (closer than on my husband;s side) I like it that way, that my kids are very close to my mom (I already don't have a father, as he is somewhere with his own family now) In fact last week when my mother came to visit, my youngest kid sleeps on her tummy. Then when she went home, my youngest was crying and looking for her. I am very comfortable with my kids being very very close to mom. [i][b]How about you? are your kids close to your parents? or are you close to your grandparents?[/b][/i]

My kids are close to their grandparents, both sides(hubby and me). We live about an hour drive from my hubbys parents and we normally sleep over at their house when we went back there. My two kids would want to sleep with their grandparents as they think it is so much fun... Meanwhile, my parents live much further away from us. Its about 4-5 hours drive and we seldom meet them. When we went back to see them, my children will always be very close the their grandfather, especially. My daughter, who loves to eat will always be in the kitchen to eat together with her grandmother... I myself was close to my grandmother(mothers' side). Perhapas it is because she lived with us and she was the one who raised us. My mom was working during day time, so i spent much time with my grandmother instead. in fact, i think i learnt most of my cooking skills, from my grandmother rather from my mom.

My son is close to my mother. He helped her to get out of a depression when she was suffering from the loss of her mother. She always gave us a helping hand since he was a baby. So its seems a natural thing for us that he is attracted to her and he is her favourite though she does not admit it.

Hi pehpot, I rarely get to see my grandchildren, as they live a long distance from me. I talk to them on the telephone. My wife has grandchildren from her first marriage and both of us are very close to them. I love my grandchildren very much and hope to see them more as they get older. Blessings.

Hi there Pehpot! I only have one son. He is close to both my parents but he's much closer to my mother. My mother and father parted ways when I was 9 and my father lives far from us that's why my son is much closer to my son.

I am close to my father's side. I know that it is common here that you are closer to your mother's side but I don't why that I am closer to them. In fact my grand mother is the one who raise me up and sometimes I feel unfortunate for not having my mother around most of the time. I even experienced some beatings and I hate it, I wish that we have moved out of my grand parents house then. I think when I finally decided to have my own, I would like my kid (OK this is hypothetical and don;'t assume that I am wanting to have a kid now) to be close to my mother. Though she was not always beside me when I was a kid I know she would never hit me and that she will do the same with my kid.

Yes they are. Actually my mom takes care of my kids whenever im not around or needs to attend to something. I am lucky to have a parent like them who takes good care of my babies. I guess the only problem i have is that they are spoiling my kids.heheh happy mylotting!cheers!

My kids are not as close to my parents nor my husbands parents as much as I would like them to be. We did not live with any of our parents when my kids were growing up. There were other kids around our parents whom developed a closer bond with them. As they get older I think my kids will develop a different type of relationship with their grandparents.

My children are very close to their Grandad(my dad).Him and my mum are the only grandparents that they have. As my partner's dad passed away last November. And he lost his mum when he was just a child. When i was growing up i was not that close to my grandparents. They have now all passed away. But i will always have a fond place in my heart for my step-grandad as he was a lovely man. I never got to know my mum's dad as he passed away long before i was born.

THat's good and it's always the case that most kids will be close to their grand parents, because grandparents will never scold the kids and always be protecting them.. lol I was not close to my grandparents, and sad to say, when i was borned, i only had a grandmother (my mom's mom), because my grandfather as well as my dad's parents have long passed away ^_^ ANd also, my mom is the youngest among all, so by time i was borned, my grandmother was like in her early 70s.. Thus i din get much time with her too and she passed away 4 yrs ago too..

my kids are close with our parents.(both on my side and to my mother-in-law).We did not teach our kids to have this close relationship on our parents.the kids observes how we are in touch with our parents.It helps a lot that they saw how we are close to our parents.

My kids are close to their grandmother (my wife's mom). She is a homemade card maker and has lot of arts and crafts and know hundreds of techniques working with paper and glue and things of that nature. My grandparents I didn't even know for the simple reason they were all deceased. My mom had me late in her life at the age of 38', So as I grew up, all family members were away in other cities and we didn't have the traveling income. My kids love hanging out with their grandfather as well, because he signs in his church choir and enjoys musical instruments. He bought the kids, musical instruments for Christmas the year before last. (Noisy ones) So needless to say, they don't get to play with them very much. They do however, enjoy spending time with one another. They are really good kids for the most part. Yes they do some wacky things from time to time, but that's the joy of parenthood. Being able to recognize the things your kids will attempt to try, because you remember trying similar or exact stunts at their age. My oldest daughter asked could she call her grandmother just yesterday. She has taken a liking to arts and crafts as well. Practically everyday she is creating something new to show me or give to me. She has a great imagination, like her father and grandmother.

Oh yes my son is close to her grandma. Perhaps he sees how close I am to my mother so he also developes the same emotion to my Mom. I know you too are very close to your mother and that is one of the reasons your kids are. And also I believe your mother is also a very caring grandma. Normally, children will not be close to someone who does not even show any affection on them. I could see how happy your mom is with your 3 kids. The photo is so nice! I know the place where that photo was taken. There is the Taal Lake view in the background. Did you take it the back side of Leslie's or just somewhere near?

My daughter used to be close to my mother until she grew older and started to become a teenager. she still loves my mom and they are close but she doesn't go to stay all night anymore since she has grown up and starting to date now.
