Are your children close to their grandparents?
Are your children, particulary your child with ASD, close to their grandparents? How often do they spend time with them?
All three of my kids are close to my mom and step dad. My oldest rents their basement apartment and my younger two love spending time there, especially if they get to spend the night. Colin is particularly close to my step dad and loves to help him make breakfast and go run errands with him. None of us are especially close to my dad or step mom though, mostly due to distance.
