I would like to initiate a chat related to https://parenting.stackexchange.com/questions/21055/grandsons-behaviour/21300?noredirect=1#comment40428_21300
I would not like to analyze the OP in the thread, but I would like to say to @Erica (who commented that she was confused by something I wrote in my answer):
The "Lucky to have" opener was intended to acknowledge and validate the OP's feelings and hard work.
Clarification: I'm not suggesting she spend less time with her grandson, but I am suggesting she spend less time in a primary caregiver role, and more time having fun with him. As primary caregiver, things are not working very well at the moment, perhaps because not enough time is being spent building a relationship with the little boy -- which I believe is the basis of all successful discipline.
I want the little boy to look forward to seeing his grandmother again. She deserves that.
I think this is still providing support -- but I do acknowledge that it would amount to providing less unpaid babysitting.
Hopefully, later on, after working on their relationship in a lower stress context, babysitting hours can be expanded once again.
My meta question is, how do I put these comments into a Chat (preferably associated with the original thread)?
