Grandparents need to be very careful with grand-parenting classes arranged by their children.

Sir, I refer to Gillian Tett’s “When looking after baby is too serious to be left to experience” December 6.

According to an old saying, the reason why grandchildren and grandparents get along so well... is that they share a common enemy. And, in this respect, it should be clear that any grandparent who is offered a “grandparenting class” arranged by their children, should be very careful indeed.

Whenever I hear my child complaining about mine and my 3 year old grandchild’s behavior, I know everything is as it should be… or, at the very least, as I like it to be.
