Education of grandmothers we begin with ourselves

the Family - it is as the small state with the laws, traditions, the population. To achieve peace and harmony, it is correct to organize life of this collective - a task difficult. And its successful decision depends on each member of the sovereign education created on a voluntary basis.

- You did not put on to it a warm hat again? How you could? You are a mother! Why he eats so a little? Probably, you badly feed him?

Questions were addressed by

to young mother who quietly flew into a rage.

- Vanya, - now the grandmother addresses the grandson, - it is impossible to run so quickly - will fall!

“Unless we are small children that we and in 30 years continued to be brought up!“ - parents are indignant and begin to wage silent or loud war with the relatives in which children become the victims, of course...

How to avoid “military operations and to turn the conflict into peaceful co-existence? How to teach children and to learn to adopt their invaluable experience which is saved up for many years lives at the senior generation?

From where the conflicts undertake?

it is valid from where? In a family there is a small miracle which requires love and attention. But parents and the grandmother cannot agree in any way as it is better to take care of the child. Constantly quarrel from - for everyones trifles. Why?

Let`s look at

attentively on sprouts of origin of a conflict situation.

As the grandmother behaves?

She criticizes

of the Notation and reproaches anyone will be enraged. There is nothing surprising that newly made mothers and fathers react: “Ourselves know how to bring up the child! The head on shoulders! Your councils became outdated! Now all in a different way!“. The senior generation is not in debt and advances to the attack: “So it is impossible to talk to parents!!!“ Everything begins anew.

How to leave this vicious circle? At first it is necessary to understand the reasons of the conflicts: what the grandmother these words wants to tell? Why every time she behaves equally, provoking to the same scandals?

are sure by

of the Grandmother that their ways of education work. They grew up such remarkable, hotly beloved children and want to help and impart experience. They are ready to devote the life to instill the vital values checked on personal experience in grandsons! But that for some reason it appears it is not necessary...

Why? The youth wants to live the life independently, making mistakes, stepping on same, but personal “rake“, and saving up own experience.

Who the first will make to

concessions, having understood that such schemes of relationship are inefficient: young parents or senior generation hoary with age? Who the first will learn to extinguish the running high conflict with a smile? Unfortunately, it is unknown. Each family in own way solves for itself a problem of relationship of generations. And the positive outcome depends on many factors, in particular, from desire of the parties to adjust the world.

I so far relatives will not agree, in a family there will always be a dissatisfied party, from - for which, actually, and there is a battle.

Who extreme?

Extreme, as usual. To it, small, unclear why once again mother looks a wolf at the grandmother. And that, in turn, takes offense or rushes in fight. The child adapts to a situation and adopts a manner of behavior of mother, copies the grandmother that in adulthood “successfully“ to duplicate the acquired schemes of behavior. Or perhaps and that it is worse: will long rake at psychologists of a problem with stutter, uncertainty in itself, nervousness, a conflictness which reasons are covered in it would seem small family disorders.

We can be at war all life with each other, accumulating offenses, inflicting sincere suffering. To spoil own life is our choice. But whether it is worth threatening scandals wellbeing of the child - the most valuable and expensive being in the world for the sake of which we are ready to give life. And whether we here are capable to change for the sake of it, having learned to understand each other?

Well, world?

you really want to become a winner and to prove to the senior generation that it lived all these years incorrectly? Perhaps, all their experience is not worth a farthing also they “morally became outdated“? Or all - something another? You dream of a peace in the home, of pleasure from in common spent time, cheerful holidays? The frictionless relations with parents and grandsons who appreciate and respect grandmothers, - your ideal? Then let`s aspire to it.

only two options of succession of events Are.

First: you do everything to go from grandmothers to the suburb, to other city, to other country, to other planet. Simply you run. It is not bad and it is not good. It is just your choice. Pluses: grandmothers far, it is possible to live, without paying attention to their opinion on different questions. Minuses: the child has no grandmother any more or communication with it is very limited that, you see, not so correctly and is useful for your child.

Second: you remain and try to improve the relations that everything it was good. That is you continue to live in one apartment, amicably you part, but nearby, you meet frequently, and it gives all of you pleasure, a neck each other you at a meeting do not throw the arms round, but are quite capable to estimate positive sides of peaceful communication with each other.


to Whom needs the world?

Let`s be defined by

at once: who needs the world and good-neighbourhood? To the mother-in-law, father-in-law, husband, father-in-law, mother-in-law? Or all - to you? Depending on your answer, we will act.

to you the world is not necessary to

Means, we will change whom? Correctly-!

the Ideal relations

For a start we will create an image of the ideal relations with the family - grandmothers, grandfathers, aunts, uncles. How you imagine them? Only you do not say that the best grandmother - that which lives for hundreds of kilometers from you and the child. It is the first option of succession of events. We already discussed it.

What it, ideal grandmother?

Now line for the ideal daughter-in-law. Or ideal parents.

Of course, it would be advisable to ask the grandmother: how she imagines the ideal relations? But there is a probability that for compliance to this image there will be enough neither moral, nor physical resources.

Therefore we build an image of the relations for which you are ready. BUT! Taking into account all merits of the grandmother - and them there is a lot of. Give we will remember them.

, How many in it fine!

what you are ready for the sake of such relations for?

What can prevent it?

Practically anything! Of course, yours the arrogance and omniscience will be restrained. It is necessary to listen to the grandmother and quite often to agree with her because a lot of things from what she can tell - reasonably. It will be necessary not only put forward verbal theories, but also to prove the case acts and results. That, of course, it is more difficult. It is necessary to rummage in granaries of memory and to remember words of gratitude and compliments with which we are ready to present all, except own parents.

What does it have to do with children?

you can tell

: all this, of course, is good, but what to do if the grandmother interferes with education? And to do it.

It is possible for

and it is necessary to talk on any subjects, avoiding on what you had conflicts earlier. Each daughter-in-law or the daughter, the son-in-law or the son perfectly know an arrangement of Achilles “heel“ at the parents, fathers-in-law and fathers-in-law.
