Our 1st grandchild is due in November and we are so excited to become grandparents. However, I am feeling rather scared at the thought. I have read many 'dont's' on this site, such as - don't pick up the baby without asking, don't kiss the baby, don't ask if the baby needs feeding/changing, don't say what you use to do etc etc. I'm almost afraid to say and do anything and this is before the baby has arrived. I understand that my daughter will want to do things her way - it is her baby - and she will need lots of encouragement -
she too is scared -but there is a fine line between wanting to be there for her to help and support her and overstepping the 'interference' line and at this stage, I don't know where that is - HELP!!
Ageism - what are we?
Books - ruin with one letter
Birthday - was it ignored?
