May 02, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 135

The creases on the forehead translate sanity and insights of a lifetime. Holding wrinkled fingers to the unknown paths of the world provides protection. Apparently, grandparents are characters of affection and dependability.

Grandparents are anchors to wisdom. One can find in them deep treasures of virtues and knowledge. With their past experiences under their belt, they hand over family values and teachings to their grandchildren and it is highly unlikely that anybody can replace grandparents.

In case of confusions and disagreements between the children and their parents, grandparents serve as a bridge. They are able to communicate with all of them in the ways that they are able to comprehend. They make parents realize that children need to be understood and parents have to see problems by their children's perspectives. On the other hand, grandparents convince children that they need to believe in their parents, who ultimately want the preeminent things for their children.

In addition to this, grandparents serve as role models for children. They exhibit tranquility, dignity and honesty, which are fundamental to a child's upbringing and nurturing. It inspires them to become responsible, desperately required by societies. Children learn to respect their elders. With so many things in transition in a child's life, grandparents serve as a helping hand to make things constant and consistent. This stability is critical in children's lives as they would be certain that there is someone always there for them. Assurance stems comfort and contentment!

During divorce, separations or conflicts among parents, grandparents' role increases. Emotional and psychological problems are catered by grandparents due to the fact that children find it easier to express what they are going through to their grandparents rather their parents themselves. In adolescent years, when a child goes through turmoil, grandparents can become their friends and impart knowledge in the friendliest way, which is first heard and accepted by teenagers as aggression is contested with patience and calmness.

For grandparents, this is a great chance to relive precious moments and become parents once again. They ensure not to commit same mistakes again with their grandchildren. Moreover, they spend quality time with their loved ones, which matters a great deal to them. Grandchildren fix the fissures which grandparents miss a lot as parents are unable to spend good time with them due to constant work pressures and escalating working hours. They become companions for each other in activities while rejoicing life. Building a win-win situation for all, parents, grandparents and obviously for children.

For enhancing bond between grandparents and children, parents must make into their account to visit grandparents more often. However, the best line of attack is to have grandparents live with them. Discover ways in which a child can spend more one to one time with grandparents. For instance, painting together, going for fishing, gardening, book reading or storytelling.

It is a pearl of wisdom that every grandparent is essential. Their characters can do wonders for grandchildren and make them attached to the family's values and social responsibilities. Children who are closed to grandparents are different from those who do not. They are a huge blessing and protective cushion for the young.
