Experts recommend that the temporary parenting plan not introduce large changes right away into the children`s lives. While some change is inevitable, parents should minimize drastic changes and introduce new situations slowly. A temporary plan is a good way to get both parents on the same page regarding the new arrangements that separation brings into the family.
The best part of being a grandparent perhaps is that you get to visit the kids when they are smiling, and the parents have to deal with them all the time, change their diapers, and take care of all the other nonsense. You get the best of all worlds. It is fun to watch the grandkids run around and play, and reminisce about what it was like to be young, or how you raised your own kids. Having grandkids visit is fun, raising grandkids can be quite a chore, perhaps you are getting too old for that.
Divorce and separation are difficult not only for the child but also for the parents. It is important that the parents do all they can to make the transition as seamless and easy as possible. Parents should try and work together if possible to create a single parenting plan so it is created in the child`s best interests. Courts will mostly accept a plan upon which both parents agree and have cooperated on.
Additionally, stress is something you do not need in your older age, stress can lead to disease, fatigue, and other problems and challenges. Dirty diapers and unclean conditions can also hamper the immune system, so there are many reasons why grandparents probably should not live with their grandkids, but love them nevertheless, and can not wait to see them again. There is a big difference between visiting grandkids and having to live with them, and apparently the empirical evidence is in, therefore you should take note of it. Please consider all this and think on it.
