In brief: Learn from them
Some grandparents don't know how best to relate to grandkids.
Being ignored or spoiled is not getting the most out of the relationship. There is much we can learn from grandparents. If nothing else, they provide clues to explain why your parents are the way they are, and more indirectly, why you are the way you are. Get on their good side by helping them teach you something: ask, pay attention.
