i sometimes think that our parents love our kids more than us? do you feel the same? they even spoil our kids on giving them everything, not like us when we we're small. do you know why? do you have any complain abut your parents spoiling your kids? i do not have any complain but sometimes i just ask myself why they act that way.

The old parents treat their granchildren as their second parenting. They are again young, they have a baby or a little child, they can remind all theese pleasure again. And they spoil the children because they think that this is a chance to compensate the too strict behaviour to their own children. Not so bad, the grannies are better babysitters then one young girl, what we rent for a hour and pay her to look after our child.

Speaking as a grandparent, I think it's merely because we can afford to give more to our grandchildren than we could our kids. Parents have a budget to stick to and it doesn't always allow for spoiling the kids. If you can feed and clothe them and give them a good upbringing they will appreciate that. Leave the spoiling and the spending to the grandparents. That way, you are giving your child more without plying them with material things. Love is what holds a family together, and I'm sure you give your kids plenty of love, as do the grandparents in their own, sweet way. Brightest Blessings.

It is because they do not carry the burden any more. They are relieved. They just enjoy. They do not have the responsibility for the grand-children. They just see the children which make them smile a lot. They are happy they are still alive and can observe how it goes on with the line of the family.

Yes, the saying goes this way..."they love more the profit than the capital"... They even mad at us everytime we scolded our kids.
