MEDIA: Wed 15-Nov-17 14:20:16

Hi all

Sky News are hosting a 0930 debate on the topic of whether grandparents over-indulge their grandkids, giving them too many sweets as has been reported in the media!

We hear this has caused outrage and we have another guest coming on saying its absolutely right, grandparents should review what they give their grandkids.

We would love someone to come on and say NONSENSE! Thats what being a grandparent is about etc.

It could be in our Osterley studio in West London, or we could potentially get a camera crew to you!

All best

Oh for goodness sake! Why does the media always reduce these things to the lowest common denominator.

Use your intelligence!

So if I was looking after my grandchildren full time , I would be acting as loco-parentis and therefore act as such.

If I am seeing the grandchildren as grandma, I will indulge them as I wish, given parents permission of course.

Check out the GN thread that is in active at the moment.
Think that will answer any questions you have.

If we managed to successfully rear our own children then does it not follow that we are more the capable to look after our
grandchildren and have their best interests at heart.hmm
