Is it ok that grandparents to meddle in disciplining your children?

January 19, 2010 11:54am CST
Some families are very close, even when the son or daughter have his or her own family, parents are still there to support, especially when grandchildren were born. But sometimes they tend to spoiled their grandchildren and the parents find it hard to discipline their own children. How will the couple settle the situation without hurting the feeling of the grandparents? Or just allow them to meddle in disciplining their grandchildren?

welcome to the wonderful world of mylot. i guess they can only meddle if they will be telling the parents or suggest. the uglt part of grandparents meddling with disciplining is they make the parents ugly in the eyes of the child. that sometimes happen when the grandparents step in. there is always a border on how and when grandparents will say something. i dont live with my parent so when it comes to disipline it is on our hands.

I think the grandparenst should sterp aside and let the parents raise the children. Now, grandparents should be able to spoil their grandchildren but not all of the time. This should be a treat.

When it come to discipline I think everyone except the parents need to butt out. It is up to the parent. That being said my daughters father and I are not together and because of his form of discipline(abuse) he is no longer allowed to see her.
