Other than love and support, giving too many material things such as toys (even for young adults) and money is not always a good idea. Odd how humans rush to the people that don't give them as much or are stricter (the person has to earn their respect) and takes advantage of those that give out of the goodness of their hearts. This seems to be the case with you. Start giving more of your time, telling him/her stories about your life, etc., and less money giving and try your best not to spoil your grandchild. Evenings home with popcorn and a good child's movie sitting in front of a nice fireplace and hot chocolate means more to most kids than all the other fancy things one can bestow upon kids. If your grandchild is older then realize that teens need space, can be master manipulators to get what they want (they can do it to their own parents) and just be there with love ... no money! Without knowing it some grandparents from each family are in competition with each other to vie for the child's approval and love. It's normal to a degree. What is important here are wise words, lots of love and showing/teaching things to children of interest. Your grandchild won't always be like this. Kids change everytime you turn around. Give it a try. Good luck Marcy

A grandmother is a grandmother, whether she died before the grandchild was born or years after. If she died long before the grandchild was born, she may not know when she became a grandmother, but that is another matter. The English language does not have a word or phrase for a grandparent who died before the grandchild was born. If you absolutely require a phrase, the proper description would be "deceased grandmother" or "dead grandmother."

FOR MY OPINON NO BECAUSE GRANDMOTHER IS BLOOD AND ELDERLY AND HALF SISTER IS IN BY MARRIAGE SO YOU DON'T COME IN A FAMILY AND DISREPECT ELDERLY If the half-sister is the mother of the grandchild, or has legal custody of the grandchild through other means, she may have the authority to stop the grandmother fro seeing her grandchild, depending on whether the state in which the grandchild lives has laws establishing grandparents' rights.

Grandmother sauces are recipes handed down in families, typically from grandmother to grandchild, so the recipes can live on throughout family history.

Yes, it is entirely possible, depending on the number of children the grandmother had and who is living.

in western cultures it is the same for all the children's children. grandmother to grandchild.

Yes, in that case your grandchild would also be your fourth cousin twice removed. But that relationship is rather minor compared to the grandparent/grandchild relationship. It can readilly be ignored.

In most jurisdictions, grandparents never receive visitation rights as an automatic process. Any such rights must be specifically sought from and granted by a court, and are not yet very common.

User Avatar

The husband of a grandmother is often the grandfather. In general, however, grandparents do not have rights to a grandchild unless the parents are dead or legally incapacitated and the grandparents are the closest competent relatives. Even then, a court must first assign custody to the grandparents, it does not come automatically.

User Avatar

You are a grandparent since you have not adopted the child but your role is to do what a mother does as well. The biological parents can very well have visitation. You and your grandchild are definitely a family.

it should be loving filled with joy and laughter there should not be any tension

For clarity. let's call your grandmother's aunt "the aunt". Sequence of relationship: (1) The aunt's child and your grandmother are 1st cousins (2) The aunt's grandchild and one of your parents are 2nd cousins (3) The aunt's great grandchild and you are 3rd cousins

official (like grandmother): Großmutter more colloquial (what a grandchild would call her granny): Oma

It's up to the parent of the child, if the parents don't agree you can always take them to court. Depends on the situation.
