Silly writer, when grandparents want revenge they just load them up on sugar and caffeine and send them home.

If they didn't want to watch my kids they should have saved for retirement.

This article is clearly missing the bigger problem. My kid expects me to watch over him and give him handouts like food and shelter and I get no monetary renumeration. This has been going on for years! Talk about parensploitation.

We take our grandaughter for a night every week. How else do I get to teach her how to grill a perfect steak and cheer for the Seahawks?

How about uncle-splotation?  I was constantly being asked to watch my sister's kids.  I got my revenge.  I gave belching lessons.  My niece was a natural.  She can let loose with a wall shaking belch that makes me proud.

hbk72777: What a bunch of delusional parents here. I love the "oh, my mother is beating down my door to watch my kids" Bullshiat. A day a week, maybe, but if you're dumping them off every day, that's farked up for both the parents and the kids. Grandparents enjoy visits, not changing diapers and having to discipline. If you can't have one parent home, then don't have kids, it's that simple. They're not pets.


At the risk of being sooo 2012:

THIS!!!

Posh...Ann Landers (or was it her sister) said nobody can exploit you like that without your consent.

My mother was a trip.   All while during the first "grandpregnancy" she was "Don't expect me to come over and baby sit.   I raised my kids."  yada yada.    That lasted about a week after the birth and then the grandma hormones kicked in and she begged to have time with the grandkids, offering to take them while the parents were busy, etc...

ReapTheChaos: This is nothing new.  Other than baby-sitters, child care didn't exist 30 years ago.


I honestly can't tell if you're joking.

My Father-In-Law has been known to push my Mother-In-Law out of the way in order to see my daughter right after we pull up. They both get a little twitchy if they don't see her for more than a couple of weeks

/Sadly, I will never trust my own parents alone with any of my offspring.
//If my mother and my MIL were both hanging off a cliff, I'd rescue my MIL first and then think real hard on whether I should help my mom or not.

My mother watches my kids once or twice a week, but she says that it gives her a chance to get some peace and quiet away from my dad.

Son of Thunder: TFA: She reckons she hears "a lot of complaints", and that grandparents put on a different face for their kids on the subject than they do to their mates.

Ah yes, the old "What you say is irrelevant. I know I'm right because I can read your mind" argument.


Actually, that's the opposite of what she said.

Behold my utter failure.

I will strike myself sharply across the face and leave the thread now.
