Family members can be a positive source of support or they can make raising your grandchild harder for you. Your other adult children may resent the time you must spend raising your grandchild.They may want you to spend more time with their children and act like a "regular"grandparent. Adult children may feel angry with their brother or sister who is not able to parent.You may feel bad or guilty about the situation.Your grandchild may notice these feelings and feel guilty, too. Open communication with all family members can help everyone feel better. For more on this subject, see fact sheet #5: The Importance of Open Communication.
