  • Be patient.
    Ask Gma how he did.
    Does Gma know your daily routine (and follow it)?

    My kids come back all skrewy & crazy from their dads house. Things are very different there...

    Do what you can to suggest ways to make it similar there --and with patience he will come to feel more natural there, too.

  • I know exactly what you are going through...I went through this same thing with my parents. My parents let my daughters do what they wanted: drink soda, eat candy, abuse their curfew...I finally sat down with my parent and explained to them this behavior is not excepted and my daughters will continue to go to time out for this type of behavior. My children are the one effected and it has to stop. My parents agreed that my rules are to be follow in my precence and when I'm not there.
