DO YOU THINK THAT YOU SHOULD HAVE TO PAY THE GRANDPARENTS TO WATCH YOUR CHILD WHEN YOU NEED ALONE TIME OR SHOULD THEY DO IT FOR FREE??

Personally, my parents would never dream of asking to be paid.

Our parents sit for free, but if they wanted or needed to be paid we would pay them.

If they do it FT so you can WORK they should get something. An occasional sit, free.

My parents do it for free. My mil watches them when we're at work and charges us. Even though my parents don't charge me I help them out.

They wouldn't accept money if I tried...we usually treat them to dinner after a few sittings though.

If they want to be paid, absolutely. You should ever expect ANYONE to watch your children for free. Usually family does not expect to be paid... but if they do, then pay them. 

My inlaws love to take my ds. They would be seriously offended if I ever offered to pay them, lol.
