  • Okay, grandparent, let's say, your son is divorced, and you help to fill gaps; when the kids are at their mother's do you still help out? If your son marries a woman with children do you sacrifice time with your biological grandkids to support your stepgrandkids? I realize it's tough. You've got a lot to offer but you do have to answer these questions. So, sit down with your loved-ones and have a candid conversation. Define what each of you expects of the other and how you will work together.

Ron: In today’s complex families, grandparents are confused.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Okay, grandparent, let’s say, your son is divorced and you’re helping to fill some of the gaps; when the kids are at their mother’s do you still help out? And, if your son then marries a woman with children of her own—you become a stepgrandparent—do you sacrifice time with your biological grandkids to support your stepgrandkids?

Look, I realize it’s tough. You’ve got a lot to offer but you do have to answer these questions. So, here’s what you do. Sit down with your loved-ones and have a candid conversation. Define what each of you expects of the other and how you’re going to work together. Loving each other well is going to take some discussion and negotiation, but you can do it. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
