Grandparents seem to have an easy job. They already practiced on their kids and now they get to do it better with their grandkids. But the job has its challenges. We can offend our children or have strained relationships with them, which jeopardizes our relationship with our grandchildren. Whatever old resentments our children might carry, they are sure to come out again when they have children and impact how they want us, or don’t want us, to be involved. In other words, grandparenting is rarely easy, and grandparents need a growing edge of humility and wisdom.
