Grand­chil­dren chat is driv­ing me bonkers

Best - - BEST FOR ADVICE - Linda, Belfast

Since friends of mine be­came grand­moth­ers, it’s all we’ve spo­ken about! I un­der­stand they’re proud and want to show pic­tures, but it’s be­gin­ning to grate on me that we never talk about other as­pects of our lives – nor do they ask any­thing about mine, as I don’t yet have grand­chil­dren. Would it be in­sen­si­tive of me to men­tion it?

Hav­ing 10 grand­chil­dren of my own, I know we some­times can’t stop talk­ing about them. Why don’t you try hav­ing a few other top­ics up your sleeve, so that af­ter a few ‘aahs’, you can sub­tly change the sub­ject!
