|Irene, I have had my 5 year old grandson since he was 11 months old. It's a rough job for me and I'm only 50 years old. He has ADHD so I am always looking after him and it really wears me out. Of course I wouldn't give him up now unless I knew his parents could take good care of him but at 75, I hope you still have alot of energy in you since you are taking on 2 children. ↑|
|I am going to be a grandmother in Febuary and feel excited and would like to know how to welcome the baby ↑|
|I think you need lots of prayers. It will be a hard job at your age looking after children. I am a granny too and find the children are so different to when we were young. They are extremely electronically minded and are happy on fron of a computer playing games etc. Have they access to a computer. |
Many blessing to you ↑

I am so loving all you awesome grandparents stepping up even tho it is really hard. Basically all you can do is your best & hope for the best outcome.
I spent alot of my childhood living with my grandparents & I don't know where I'd be without them.
I'll always appreciate what my wonderful grandparents did for me & your grandchildren will too!! ↑
|I don't think you should be taking permanent care of the children but my hat goes off to you. You need to read some child care books,(Dr. Neufeld is great). Also, kids love crafts and they love you to read to them. Any time an adult spends time with them they love it . Just remember that they're children and you'll do fine. You NEVER need to yell or spank a child . Lazy parents yell and spank and it's only because they want the power over the children. ↑|
