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.

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.
