COVID-19 restrictions: what's closed and what's open.

Many grandparents are playing an increasingly important role in the care of their grandchildren. For many, this means looking after the grandchildren while their parents work a few days a week, while other grandparents look after grandchildren full time. 

While providing regular care is of course a wonderful opportunity to get to know your grandchildren, it can also take some adjusting to.

Ideas about parenting have changed and this can create some tensions with your adult children. You may also need to have conversations with them about how much you can take on while also maintaining your own health and wellbeing.
