If the court awarded you custody of your grandson, then it's the same as you being the parents. You raise him as you would your own child. If the natural father wants to contribute, then you should make sure that whatever he provides you use for the boy's food, clothes, school, shelter, even your utility bills if you need to (because your expenses will be higher by taking care of someone else). If the father gives toys, etc. then give those to the boy, unless you feel they are inappropriate for his age, then recommend what else the father could get instead.
What other questions do you have?
