Dealing with overly pampered children by grandparents

Conflicts between parents and grandparents are bound to happen but this should not affect your baby in any way.

  • Well! Actually it is good to have grandparents around in the same house.
  • The child feels loved and warm in their company and sometimes they help you check your own destructive behaviour like screaming or yelling on your child.
  • But when these grandparents spoil them with loads of toys and sweets and extra permission of watching T.V or playing games, the matter worsens.
  • Here the parents, husband and wife, need to come together and stand up for each other. Whenever there is a conflict between the adults in the home, there is always a power struggle which has a bad impact on children.
  • Make a conversation with your child. Make him/her sit and explain your child that whatever their grandparents are doing they are doing out of love. But when it comes to making important decisions or making rules for the child it is parents’ responsibility because they are accountable for the child. We don’t have authority over the grandparents but we have on the child as a child is not an adult.
  • Make a conversation on this basis. Be calm, have firm tone and Keep repeating.
  • You can talk to grandparents and make them realise that this is spoiling your child’s habits in long run but chances are less for them to change.
  • Final word is focus on your own parenting instead of changing grandparents. Also accepting the grandparents without any hard feelings will help in nurturing the characteristics of being non judgemental in our kids.
