Step Parents. Bringing Outsiders In.


Stepgrandparenting is steadily becoming a norm. How to bring a step parents into your family.

It is always heartening to see a relationship stand the test of time but the reality is that many relationships do not. It is quite natural for two people to fall apart over the years, whether or not there are tumultuous circumstances.

Regardless of what leads to the dissolution of marriage, one shouldn’t let past relations turn sour or the people who were once close to become complete strangers.

Not only is being in good terms a healthy way to approach life but it is also helpful in many ways.

Stepgrandparenting is steadily becoming a norm in innumerable families. In-laws often get estranged when their sons or daughters get divorced from the daughters-in-law or sons-in-law respectively. But what happens to their sons and daughters who may have been born before, during or after the dissolution of marriage.

Grandparents should have the right to be with their grandchildren and vice versa. It only helps when grandparents have a role. It makes the lives of the biological and legal parents simpler and easier.

In today’s fast paced world when emotions often take a backseat and so does caring for loved ones, grandparenting becomes crucial to the grooming of a child.

The situation becomes even more enticing when divorced sons-in-law or daughters-in-law have kids from their subsequent marriages. Stepgrandparenting is what becomes desirable at that stage. One however has to be extremely liberal and open minded to accept everyone wholeheartedly without any malice in mind. If this can be achieved then the ever growing families of each son, daughter, divorced son-in-law and divorced daughter-in-law can become one large family. While it may appear to be bringing the outsiders in, it is more like forging relationships with people with whom there was a relationship already.

149The society is changing. There are some adverse impacts of evolution and some positive ones. While there are more failed marriages today than ever before, the liberal approach of grandparents, estranged in-laws and former partners can make way for a better understanding and forming a large family.

Stepgrandparenting is extremely beneficial for all and sundry. Grandparents get to be with their grandkids while the parents wouldn’t have to deny the kids an access to their grandparents simply because they got divorced.

From any perspective you look at it, bringing the outsiders in and stepgrandparenting is a wonderful family1249initiative. At the end of the day, divorced parents who have kids from an earlier marriage may have to become stepgrandparents in the future, when one would certainly want to still have access to their grandkids and vice versa.
