Don't Criticize Their Parenting

If you can't bite your tongue, never criticize your adult children's parenting style in public.

It can be hard to sit on the sidelines when your kids have kids. You'll want to jump in when you see them making the same mistakes you made -- or when you see them raising their children completely differently than you did. But resist the temptation to rush in with criticism. If you see a situation you just can't leave alone, approach your child in a private, nonconfrontational way. Have an honest discussion, and don't be offended if your child doesn't take your advice.
