Ok, GP.com is working on the tech problem w/ me.

What I mean is, I can log into GP.com. butt when I click on Community, it says "Sign in," as if I haven't. If I click on "Sign in," it sends me back to the same login page - where it says I'm already logged in. I tried a few times, but just kept going around in circles.

Meanwhile, what I love about the above article is that it encompasses general qualities, such as "caring" and "confidence," that most people can get behind. So, in most cases, grandparents can easily support what the parents are trying to do (or vice versa if the GPs are raising the kids, for some reason, and relations w/ parents are amenable). There may still be some differences, though, between parents and GPs in some families, and that's where the GPs may find themselves overstepping w/o meaning to. For example, some parents focus more on general kindness and not as much on specific "manners." Or some parents and GPs may have different ideas as to when a child is "old enough" to get their own snack, etc. In those cases, I think it's better for the GPs to follow the parents' lead (or again, vice versa, if the GPs are raising the grandkids).

Oddly enough, I can post here, but since Friday, I haven't been able to post in the Community! Is anyone else having this problem?

All virtues are enabled by becoming a Christian! :-)
