Any child who is the under the age of 18 is a minor. Minors, depending on their age, can be very demanding and challenging. In fact, minor grandchildren can be a handful for grandparents to handle. Several arguments and questions were raised if a grandparent should raise a grandchild beyond a particular age.
There are several things that children need to do like studying, going for various classes, having hobbies, and also going on holidays. Several grandparents like to take their grandchildren on holidays along with them whether or not they are living with together. That could be wonderful experiences provided a grandparent does everything right from the word go as they say.
A minor grandchild means responsibility to start with. Everything from their daily spending money to their passport has to be handled with care. These days it has become easy to travel internationally also since children can have their own passports. However, being children they also need their independence to do their own stuff. A grandparent should be in a position to provide this independence in a controlled manner.
Children like to shop for their own stuff and grandparents should be able to budget their expenditure just like a parent would do. Children cannot take $100 and spend it all in one shop and then ask for more money. They may do it unknowingly but it is the responsibility of the grandparents to make sure they do not do this. There are several other things like what they can eat and what they cannot, medications to take on the trip, caring for their needs, grooming and basically ensuring their overall safety. All this has to be taken into consideration while having as much fun as possible during the holiday.
