READING PAGES 54-55

1. a.
I think in most cases the grandparent benefits more than the grandchild in the sense that most older people get a thrill out of seeing younger relatives. Of course, children benefit from having willing childminders in the form of their grandparents. However, grandchildren can be spoilt. Also, in some cultures, people look to their grandchildren to care for them in their old age.
As we’ve already said, I think grandparents are far more likely to spoil their grandchildren than their parents are, and are less likely to discipline them. It’s a parent’s job to discipline their children, not a grandparent’s.

1. b.
The title suggest that grandparents find it hard to understand or communicate with their grandchildren, and vice versa.

  • caring for grandchildren, exploiting grandparents

B: It might be advisable to ask a relative or close friend to mediate for you. It’s often the case that our partners automatically react defensively if we criticise them in any way without listening to what’s actually being said. He might, therefore, be more likely to listen to a third party.
A: That sounds like a good idea, but I’m not sure who would be the right choice. It could make things worse if he thinks I’ve discussed our problems with one of his friends, etc.
