    You should if you are financially ready. I have spent some remarkable time with mine since doing so and I don't have a single regret but I don't honestly know if I could say that If I couldn't really have afforded to do so,

    Crazy question. If you're going to retire, do it for yourself. How would you retiring (from what) help your grandkids? Or are you retiring to hurt them? Now, if you retire and spend time with them, talking about "the olde tymes" and about their forebearers, that might be worth more than any money you could earn working to leave to them. As I look at your input to HubPages, I'd say you are already retired and having a ball writing. Am I right?

    I think you should retire for yourself.   I love my granddaughter and we spend a lot of time together, but I still work and she goes to school.   I pick her up after school twice a week, why would you want to retire for them?
