The role of grandparents in a child’s education

After the parents and the nanny, grandparents have an important role to play in the schooling of the child. Grandparents often provide a softer approach with regards to strictness to the children, as they do not get to see the grandchildren all the time.
They allow themselves to be less authoritarian, which does not always get the parents’ total approval.
However, you shouldn’t be worried about this situation as the children are aware that the rules are different with parents and grandparents.
The increase in freedom can actually be more advantageous to the children as they will benefit from the patience and availability of their grandparents to experience new activities, like puzzles, gardening or cooking.
