      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

  1. Calling All Guys, 2017!

    We have lots of women come on these boards - moms and GMs (grandmothers), MILs (mothers-in-law) and DILs (daughters-in-law) etc. But it would be good to hear from more of you guys, as well. So please come and join the few guys we already have here. When you're ready, please introduce yourself below and let us know about your grandparenting experience - good, bad or indifferent. Please feel free to ask questions or make suggestions, etc. And perhaps, join in some of the other conversations in this community, as well.
  2. When I was a young mom, years ago, DH and I divided up our roles in a very traditional way, as did most of the young couples we knew. He was the "breadwinner" and I was a SAHM who did the bulk of childcare and housework. He pitched in w/ the house and the kids to some degree, but very little. It's the reason I felt the need for DM's help and even had her stay w/ us for about a week when I had ODD.   How about you? How do/did you and your spouse/SO divide up the childcare? And where does/did a GM (or GF) figure in, for that matter (or do they)?   Also  if you're a GP/relative caregiver of any kind, to what degree does your spouse/SO pitch in w/ the childcare, if at all?
