Retiring can lead to a new career for many seniors: babysitting. If your kids live nearby, you may spend some of your golden years looking after your grandkids.
It can be a blast, but can also become a burden. That’s why it’s important to set some boundaries with your family. Don’t be afraid to say no. While it’s fun, nanny duty could hinder your social life if you’re doing it too much. You can outline how much free time you’re willing to spend and how much notice you need.
When the kiddos come over, have a plan. Make sure you have age-appropriate games, toys, and TV or movies for your grandkids. You can also choose a nearby park or activity to enjoy with your grandkids.
