uk175.jpgI'm excited because I'm going to be a grandfather for the first time but I live at the other side of the country, how can I be a good grandparent?
Nowadays, it is not uncommon for grandparents to live some distance away from their grandchildren, but this does not mean it isn't possible to be a 'good' grandparent.
handclap175.jpgMy son is asking too much of me to be their constant child minder, I don't want to upset anyone, what should I do?
This is a tricky situation to be in, and not an uncommon one, sadly. I'm sure you adore spending time with your grandchildren, and are glad to be able to help your son, but you naturally have your own life to lead as well.

Having a baby is a very emotional experience and the majority of women have times of feeling low and/or tearful in the early days following the birth, often referred to as the 'baby blues'.

The term 'grandparent' means different things to different people and their families. Some may live a long way away from their grandchildren while others can see them on a more regular basis

Having a new baby in the family is a wonderful event but it can also be a bit daunting and many grandparents find themselves nervous at first.
