Grandparent's Day 2015

Grandparent's Day 2016

“The value of grandparents should not be underestimated. Grandparents frequently have more influence per time invested than do parents because of their unique relationship to their grandchildren. Grandparents are usually more relaxed than parents. This makes them approachable. They concentrate on giving love without the necessity of meting out discipline. Their time with their grandchildren is usually better planned and more intentional than parents’ time. All of this adds up to what some social scientists have called ‘grandparent phenomenon.’ Children catch more of their grandparents’ perspective on life than that of their parents. This can be a comfort if you are wondering about the effects of how your children are raising your grandchildren, and you may consider it a call to action to make the most of your time when you are with them.”
