It is because you shower your love and affection on them as they are primarily your Grand kids. You spoil them tolerating all their mischief , as their parents raise them to be good citizens. You only want to make them enjoy to their hearts content and give them freedom to do what they like. It is natural as you enjoy with them, as my friend Fromroad said " The best ornament in your neck is the arms of your grand kids"

Best Answer

Yes, because we don't have the same time with them that we did with our own kids. We had our kids 24/7, our grandchildren we see from time to time and that makes the time we have with them more precious.

Some have suggested it's an evolutionary adaptation to our unusually long childhoods. Grandmother's around the world tend to provide a great deal of support in the way of food and baby sitting.

Well I have 5 children and 3 grandchildren and since my two youngest daughters are not much older than my grand kids I can say i don't love them in a different way it's exactly the same way for me and since two of my grand kids live with me too I treat them al the same we do every thing together I worry about them a little bit more I guess only cause my daughters are just learning to be mothers and in this day an age your frightened incase they step out if line as I don't think they have as much freedom to grow as back then an I have loads of patience but my love definitely isn't different for me its just the same and I discipline the kids the same way as I brought my older daughters up so hopefully we all live a happy a full tiling life x x

It's different. You were responsible for raising your kids 24/7. Your grand-kids have someone else in charge of that; we may have some input, but their parents bear the brunt of it. The pressure is off, and you can just experience the joy without the anxiety.

With me I love my kids & 3 grand children, I had fun with my kids & bought them up to be respectful, I have fun with my grandkids in much the same way & they will grow up much the same. Its love.

Best Answer

oh I think it is indeed different, but I hope I don't love any I might have any less, my parents and parents in law get and receive much pleasure from our offspring, they are not subject to so much daily stress and strain is part of it I am sure.

Me too! Everything my grandson wants to do is a wonderful idea in my mind and the mess...who cares? I tell him he can do anything he wants (except be disrespectful or cruel to the pets) and I mean it.

Best Answer

He's never been mean to the pets, but, I always want to teach a special reverense for the pets.

Best Answer

Maybe you're just older and have more patience.



My grandmother ADORES me. I have no idea why.



I'll vaguely mention that I want a new...coffee maker or something else inane and she'll literally spend weeks searching for the best one to buy me.



It annoys my mother too :D
