The young at heart, the best wisdom givers and the best of friends!-The grandparents!
Grandparents may be old and but they give your child moments of trust, knowledge & unconditional love. Childhood memories are incomplete without grandparents.
Right from inculcating moral values and good old habits which have helped them all their lives, to cooking classic recipes and sharing priceless memories & wisdom, grandparents are great guides to your child.
There is so much that comes with age-experience, know-how, nostalgia, and a bountiful of experiences to share! Your children will always learn more, know more and be more with grandparents around.
They might come from a different time, when technology didn’t rule the world or when gender equality didn’t exist but they have seen struggle which we will never, they had opportunities which made meaning to their lives, they lived a charm which is different from today’s charm and so they will always have something or the other to share with your child and enrich them.
Today nuclear families seem to be the order of the day, but let’s not forget about the value grandparents can add to your child’s life & well-being.
As parents, you must ensure your children meet and spend time with grandparents. There is something common that children and grandparents share, though they have lived and live in totally different times. They both feel lost in an ever-evolving & volatile world and so they will help each other navigate through this maze of a world with their own experiences, feelings & know-how!
Ultimately, that is what binds them!
