Hi. I have a problem I would like to share and get others’ opinions if I may. My daughter and my 2 grandchildren, aged 9 & 7, live approx 8 kms away from me. Moved here to be closer to and see more of the grandkids. Well, with school, dancing, swimming, footy, little athletics and homework, I am lucky to see them once a fortnight! Either if I go there or they come here. Am I being unreasonable? How often do others see grandkids that live so close?

Can you help her? What is your advice?
