Abuelos...

Do the grandparents spoil your kids? We have an issue with my   in-laws and sweets. They don't know how to say no!

Yes, but not necessarily with sweets- sometimes it's toys. Both sets of grandparents live out of town, so they do a bit of spoiling and at times it seems like they're trying to out-do each other.

My parents spoil the kids but by letting them kinda get away with more than I would at home. They respect my wishes of not wanting them havein sweets and such though. But my ex hubs parents tried to shove every cupcake/icecream/and donut down there throats as soon as they got a tooth. I'm so glad I don't have to deal with that woman anymore.

Yes, but no always sweets more like video games, money, dolls. Anything they ask for they get from their grandma.

My in-laws are the smae way. I have seen them offer the junk to them when they aren't even asking for it!

when they were young it was a flipping pain. But now that they are older they understand my husband and I won't just give them everything. We have talked to my husband's mom about this but we don't know what she does when they are at her home.
