I will be 57 in Sept. Our son is 37, and daughters are 35 and almost 32. Neither of the girls have a relationship with their brother, and the youngest is estranged from all of us. She has lost custody of 3 of her 4 children to their fathers because of here lifestyle. All we can due is pray some day she will come to her senses. We do get to see the grandkids, except for the infant she has. We try to maintain a close relationship to our oldest 2. Our almost 40 yr marriage is strong, as is our faith in God, or I could not survive!

Hi all, I will be 54 this month and have 4 children, ages 34, 31, 28, & 26. I also have 13 grandchildren of which 8 are biological and the other 5 are through marriages but to me they are my grandchildren as well, I treat them no different as the others. All of my children are really close and get along very well and so does my grandchildren and I am extremely happy about that. I thank God for all of them everyday...

I'm 54, will be 55 in October. Mine are b29 (w. partner), g27 (m. w. granddaughter), bg19, bg16, g13. I also have two stepsons and several step-grandchildren. Loving it! I find parenting in my 50s much easier than in my 20s, when I worried about everything and especially what other people thought. Now I figure my record stands for itself, because all my children turned out to be amazing. :-)

Hi Anne! Interesting, I don't feel I have more energy, just a different perspective. And I think I have an image of what a community should be that's different from what it is today - all the support is fragmented, and it's not just the folks next door or down the street who drop in and out - it's finding people in other places and coordinating with them, which is harder and harder with everyone so busy.

Oh I was going to say it is hard meeting moms my age, the problem is I have too much energy, even for the 30yr olds at times. I try to pick up their children with my son to do stuff. Taboganning, skiing, etc. I just turned 47 and do alot of walking for my job plus the gym and hike my 3 dogs

Hi Louri! I have a 24yr old daughter that just got married a yr ago and I have a son who is 10yrs old. Their bond is pretty good, tough at times though cause they live far apart. Jenn moved out at 19yrs old so that was hard on our son, they talk of and on but once he gets older should get better. He hates talking on the phone!! lol

I'm 51 and have a six-year-old daughter. It's a blessing and also the hardest thing I have ever done. It's a challenge meeting people, being older than most parents in the age group and not having seen healthy relationships in my family of origin.

Hi, I will be 54 in September. I have a 29 year old, 17, 15, 15 14 and 13 year old. I had better add the son - in law and new grandbaby that will soon be 7 months old. The 29 year old has a special bond with each of the others. The others get along well and love each other, but sometimes it is a love hate relationship because they are all teenagers. It love them all and is fun balancing all of the activities and watching them grow and mature.

kia ora, I am from New Zealand. I have 4 children, Aaron 36, Cezanne 31, Rita 22 and my baby Lai 13. Even with the big gaps in their ages, they have a fantastic bond towards each other. I have 5 wonderful grandchildren and just feel so blessed.
