Just like the young grand children, grandparents too are a bubbly lot of individuals – if they enjoy to be lively & cheerful.

According to Seniorindian.com, grandparents play a pivotal role not only in loving & caring for their grandchildren but also for instilling the moral values. They should gradually build a sense of right & wrong in the minds of these young ones for a bright future. Also, the senior citizens play a very major role for an overall grooming of their young counterparts in absence of their parents. Nowadays, both mother & father work in offices for long hours. So, the grandparents really need to step in to care for & provide emotional support to their blossoming grandchildren. The grandparents are believed to be the highly guaranteed source of care & support at home. And, it is indeed heartening for the parents too that their children are growing up amidst the cozy & responsible grandparents.

Along with this, grandparents can play the role of a mediator between their children & grand children about family matters. Especially, any sensitive family matters can be responsibly dealt with by these senior members. Since, grandparents are the most experienced & adept at responsibly raising a family, they can rightfully advise their own children & grandchildren for sorting out any issues. Yet, it should be preferably, a friendly advice too to bond the three generations together against all odds.

Nowadays, though, the grandparents and their grandchildren stay far away from each other. It is really difficult for grandparents to spend time with their grandchildren who reside abroad. So, how should one deal with this? They can meet at occasional get together or exchange letters/ emails to enhance a mutual bonding.  

Yet, for those grandparents who stay with or near their grandchildren, it is easy to bond together. How? There are many effective methods of striking an intergenerational rapport. The grandparents can take their little grand kids to a park, fair, zoo, theme parks or movies. It is a new, unique way for them to relate better with these young ones. It is a sure shot way of mingling & befriending each other to cut through the generation-gap syndrome. Thus, grandparents have a huge role to build and cement the strong relationships among their family & nurture it for the grandchildren. So that the grand kids can successfully maintain such robust family ties in the future as well.

The grandparents are indeed a link to the family’s culture & heritage. Also, their blessings are a must-have & most sought after gift at festive occasions and traditional ceremonies; their presence is indeed highly wanted at auspicious events like marriage, naming ceremony, birth and marriage anniversaries etc. The elders’ blessings are highly necessary before beginning any new initiatives or deciding about important decisions.

So, now you know why grandparents are called Grandparents? Yes, you are right. Since, they play a ‘grand’ role in our life, they are called so. Thus, to sum it all up, let us watch a small video!

Happy Grandparenting!
