I imagine many of you relate to what I wish to talk about.
My grandchildren are 11, 18, 18 and 21.
The 11 and one of the 18 year olds live away. But I have had them for a week or so during the summer holidays.
I am a crafter and they loved making and doing things with me. The 11 year old will be staying us soon. I am so looking forward to it. She has problems with her absent father. I want to let her know how much she is loved.
two of the oldest are off to uni this year and I have offered them the wisdom of age. We know drugs and alcohol play a big part in uni life. I have had friends whose student children have taken the wrong path and wasted their expensive chances of a good life. It is a sad thing to see..
We love our daughters and we gave them the best chances we could.
The world can be a dangerous place. But we cross our fingers and hope they will be safe.
I`m not asking for advice here, just sharing grandparent thoughts.
