Families work best when everyone functions in his and her proper role. This means that parents need to be in charge, children need to know what is expected of them and to be given increasing freedom as they move through adolescence, and grandparents need to be "honored" in an advisory (only) role. When grandparents meddle or disempower parents or when children are in charge, problems arise.
