Is there jealousy in your family about the grandkids? A Parent Minute friend asks, “How do I divide time among several grandkids without appearing to favor one over the other because of logistics?” Mom and Dad, I hope you’re not jealous of your siblings’ kids. It’s easy to do. You’re probably struggling because your mom or dad is spending more time with your nieces and nephews because they live closer than you do. I know it’s hard, but stop. Grandparents LOVE spending time with grandkids. Don’t get mad at them for that. Grandparents, remember sibling rivalry doesn’t go away when they’re adults. Make every effort to be inclusive of family members who are far away. Skype or FaceTime calls and extended annual visits can help.
