This contest is over! Congratulations to our winners: alisonbreher, msnfnp, cspain, aloflin, haleyandbryce, lovestosave, scorpio962, mcrebec2, suznan and, on Twitter, elygperez.

Parental Guidance, a new comedy starring Billy Crystal and Bette Midler, hits the theaters on Christmas day, but I have 10 packs of four tickets to give away to a special screening on Dec. 20!

Crystal and Midler play Artie and Diane Decker in this PG-rated movie from 20th Century Fox. They are called in by their daughter, played by Marisa Tomei, to help care for their three grandkids. When their old-school parenting methods collide with their daughter’s new-school ways, the once-orderly household spins out of control.

Learn more about the movie on Facebook and Twitter. Watch the trailer on YouTube.

The special screening is 6:30 p.m., Dec. 20, at Regal Crossroads in Cary.

What do you need to do to enter to win? One or both of the following:

1. Follow @GoAskMom on Twitter and tweet once about the contest.

2. Answer the following question in the comments below: Is there anything your kids get to do with their grandparents that you would never let them do at home?

This contest ends at noon, Dec. 10. Ten winners will be picked at random from all entries. The winners' user name or Twitter name will be posted on this post by 9 p.m. Dec. 10 and an email or message will be sent to the winner, if possible. The winner must respond by 5 p.m. Dec. 13 or a runner-up will be selected. Good luck!

    As the grandparent I give them WAY more sweets than my own kids got. Before dinner, before bedtime, when they get antsy in a store. I keep "treats" in my purse & snacks around the house just for them. I hide them from my kids because they are just for the grandkids. There are rules....just not when it comes to food.

    I don't want the free tickets (too far from work/home) but had to comment. When my dad was living and my kids quite young, he would let them leave the door WIDE OPEN in the summer and walk in and out of the house non-stop. When we were kids we were sternly scolded for not making sure the door was fully shut and we better only go out once and come in once. ;o) Gotta love grandparents.

    My parents usually let the kids stay up until they fall asleep which is normally WAY past their bed time.... but they have a great nana and papa!

    It's like a free for all when it comes to being at grandma's house she let's my son stay up late,Mc D's is on the menu whenever he likes and dessert is a nightly thing not just a now and then.
