‘Be open and hon­est’

Pick Me Up! - - HOT TOPIC -

El­iz­a­beth Duff, se­nior pol­icy ad­viser at NCT, says, ‘The cost of child­care can of­ten be too much, whereas get­ting help from Grandma or Grandad is an eas­ier op­tion for most.

‘Of course, this doesn’t stop folk feel­ing guilty as it may mean that grand­par­ents are hav­ing to hit pause on some­thing in their life.

‘How­ever, I don’t think I know many grand­par­ents who would be­grudge any time spent with their grand­child.

‘Every­one’s cir­cum­stances will be dif­fer­ent, but we all just have to make it work best for our sit­u­a­tion – some­thing that’s easy if you can be open and hon­est.’
