I’m almost 70 and starting to feel my age, but my children who have full-time jobs expect me to look after their children all day every day. I love my grandchildren, but it’s getting to be too much for me.
Queenie, do you have any suggestions?—Tired grandmother
What about your children’s in-laws? Can they help out with the children?
There must be day-care and after-school programmes in your community, and some of them should be low-cost or even free of charge.
There should be options that will give you some relief, at least part-time.
