What sort of a daft survey is this? It asks how many grandchildren I have.
My answer: 0
Next question: How old are your grandchildren?
and it insists upon an answer. There is no Not Applicable option.

Doh! That's the last occasion I will waste any of my time and attention on such foolishness.

It didn’t do that for me, I’ve just completed it.

FannyCornforth Fri 12-Mar-21 00:36:46

Scribbles it worked absolutely fine for me.
I ticked the 'no grandchildren' box too

HEY FELLOW OLD PEOPLE - GRANDMAMAMAMAMAGG HERE. COME OVER Y'ALL, I'M SO OLD AND AMAZING I HAVE A WRINKLY FINGER :D

Why are people on Gransnet if they have no Grandchildren?

Kittyme1 Fri 12-Mar-21 17:57:07

Duly completed!

Scribbles Fri 12-Mar-21 22:58:48

OK. If it works for everyone else, I guess I'll have to concede it was finger trouble. But I can't be bothered to go back and try again; sorry GNHQ.

Jzpap: In my case, it's because I'm b#$-*¥ perverse!

Is this a genuine question, or are you on the wind up?
It's quite obvious that we discuss many, many other things than grandparenting on here.

Oh dear. I rather thought gransnet was for women who had grandchildren. Doesn't mean you can't discuss other topics

Why? Why shouldn't I be here?
I don't get it.
Brace yourself - I don't have children either shock

Charleygirl5 Sat 13-Mar-21 11:04:02

Parky neither do I- I had no idea I should not be here! I have been a member for over 10 years and to date it has not been a problem. Are you new and wanting to change the rules?

FannyCornforth Sat 13-Mar-21 11:37:03

Solidarity Charlie thanks

FannyCornforth Sat 13-Mar-21 11:38:14

Oh dear indeed hmm

eazybee Sat 13-Mar-21 16:13:40

Exactly the same: how many grandchildren?:none;
What ages are your grandchildren? This question requires and answer!!!
In reply to Jzpap: not a requirement of entry to have grandchildren.

Why would anyone start a survey about the care of grand children if they were not a grandparent?
It’s looking for something to complain about.

No, the OP says that the survey is asking our thoughts on the Coronavirus situation at the moment including grandparents providing childcare.

Not 'What are grandparents' thoughts on childcare (or the Coronavirus situation)?', which would be a very different question, and in any case wouldn't make the surgery question a sensible one.

Tangerine Sat 13-Mar-21 20:32:09

I don't think it matters if people are not grandparents.

Perhaps a change of name for the site is in order. Gransnet sounds a bit old-fashioned.

In case I sound unkind, I'd like to say I enjoy my time on Gransnet.

It's not about Grandparenting.
It's about Lockdown.

I'm another who is childfree - I will now banish myself to a cave in the middle of nowhere so as not to offend those who have given birth

Parky Sun 14-Mar-21 10:17:48

Sorry if I unintentionally stired things up. I have absolutely no problems with grandchildless (is there such a word) just went on the name which is gransnet.

People can be very prickly

The name Gransnet is a little confusing. Suppose it was originally taken from the Mumsnet. However to me it has always just been a good site for discussions with more mature aged people, not just grandparents, or, indeed, just women.

One of my friends used to come with me to a local Gransnet meet-up group, and was always worried as she did not have (not is likely to have) any g.children. I (and the other there) always told her that it was not a problem).

My biggest shock though is nothing to do with whether or not posters have children or g.children, but realising that many of the posters on here are around the same ages as my own children. Not sure if we now need a separate section for those, say, over the age of 75 years. smile
