Multiple layers: This is a more complex question than it might seem on the surface. As dr. Bergman indicated, grandparents often are exempted from some rules that parents impose, but it is also important that they not undermine parental authority. Loading kids down with candy has problems ranging from weight to tooth decay. The broader question is how can grandparents be a positive force in the child's life. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
