When an adult (single) mother lives back with her parents and the grandparents provide all of the support and more than their share of child rearing, does it negatively affect a child if the grandparents are the ones making sure homework gets done?

She makes sure my daughter does all of her homework, tutors her in areas she needs help with and is very involved in the PTA. She has been OUR anchor and bridge to many resources that I did not know existed. I'm blessed to have that kind of help.
