This sounds like an excellent approach to the problem. Of course, nothing is going to work every time, but repetition of the sentence, "That behavior is not acceptable," should get the message across. I just think the grandmother should be sure to not let the dust-up prevent her from having fun with her grandson later--even if it's only five minutes later.
