How much practical it is to handle grandchildren?I have two grandchildren. The elder one is two and half years old. At times I find myself thoroughly incompetent and unable to manage her on my own for extended periods primarily because there is a mismatch between our energy levels.
There is one more subtle factor. The kids primarily belong to their parents. It is a myth that grandparents can look after the children more adeptly. As far as love and affection is concerned, the same will generally be overflowing but the problem crepts in controlling the naughtier behaviour of the kids, an area where the incompetence becomes palpable.
I believe that there are many ISCians who are blessed with the grandchildren. In case you are one of such fortunate grandfather, then please share your observations.
