When Grandma is a Softie

Question

Our children are very close with their grandparents. We do not live in the same city as them but they are only an hour away and they see them very regularly. We expect our children to use manners and behave according to the standards we set in our own home when they are staying with grandparents. Grandfather is on board but grandmother can be soft. Mainly with the way she allows them to boss her around. I want to trust that they would tell us if our children misbehave or there is a problem. Our children love and respect their grandparents but we want this to last and for them to have a good relationship with them into adulthood. What is the best way to deal with this and what is the proper way to handle this expectation?
