How often should a grandmother reasonably expect to see her grandchildren?
Well my parent's have been in serious withdrawal since I moved back in February over two hours away! They were used to seeing them every day, but now we are lucky to see them once a month. I think if you are a good grand parent and a positive influence in your grand children's lives, you should be allowed to see them when you can, as long as it does not interfere with your child's marriage or activities/plans.
We used to visit my grandparents almost every day. They were awesome so I enjoyed it. My grandma is still alive and I call her as often as I can. I only get to see her about once a year now though because we live 1000s of miles away. I miss her
But I agree with April that you should be able to see them whenever you can (and whenever they can).
My grandchildren have both sets of grandparents living in the same town. So the other grandmother sees them maybe 2 or 3 times a week, and I see them maybe once or twice weekly. I have some benign health issues that make it difficult. But we do have fun when we are together.
I think seeing one's grandchildren depend on how far apart you live, the nature of one's relationship with your child and their children. I'm not willing to say it is a "right," but more a happy obligation to be a part of their lives.
I think it is very reasonable to see them monthly, or every other week if there is distance involved, and also phone calls and little notes in the mail. Kids love getting mail.
once a month. I used to visit her once a week but when i skip one or 2 weeks, she started to show her unhappiness. My bro gave me a lashing and told me not to do it if i can't visit her everyweek. Hence, i changed to once a month much to my convenient.

What are some good grandmother/grandfather names?We're trying to come up with some names for my parents, since they're about to be grandparents for the first time. Any ideas? (They don't want to sound old, because they're not even 40 yet, so be creative, but not silly please.)

Do grandparents love their grandchildren more than their own children?I have heard some grandparents say that they love their grandchildren more. Is it because they have forgotten how much they used to love their own children?

Happy Grandparents Day to all the grandparents out there! If you are indeed a grandparent, then you do not need me to tell you just how Grand it is being a grandparent. We love our children, of course, but the love of a grandchildren is almost too special to try to put into words. ...
