Different Rules at Grandparents

Q: “My daughter is allowed to get much messier than I would like when she plays at my mother-in-law’s. I’m worried about the message she’s getting. How will my daughter learn which way is right?”

A: You are your daughter’s most influential role model, but children can form strong attachments to several loving caregivers.

Even at this age, your daughter is able to understand that a rule in one house may not be the same at another house. She will adjust her behavior as she grows and will benefit from having a variety of close relationships within her extended family, as well as with you.
