15 Things Grandchildren can learn from Grandparents

Grandparents complete the term “Home Sweet Home”. They mould one’s character. Just a small word of concern & love, a touch of care or a loving smile is enough, to make them happy.

The relationship between a grandchild and grandparent is an extraordinary one. While grandparents provide unconditional love, they also wield incredible influence. They always help us and guide us through difficult and rough times.  They teach us so many things and prepare us to face the world.

Grandparents are tender, kind, selfless and patient souls. Not to comment the tasty food that my grandma cooks. There is no pleasure than going to grandparents’ house for weekends and holidays. I have learnt to be positive and ambitious from them.

We too have been kids once and we too have done the similar type of things our kids do today, so who is better to teach the life lessons to our children than their grandparents. All the munchkins are favourites of their grandparents and the grandparents too love their little munchkins more than they love their own children.

 “I believe in the worth of life. I trust we must prepare our little munchkins for tomorrow with the family morals of my grandparents.”

So there are innumerable things our kids can learn from their grandparents, some are given below.

  • History / Stories
  • The Importance of family
  • The Good Old games

  • Respect for elders
  • Kindness
  • Humility

                    “Some of the world’s finest educators are grandparents”  

Like our parents, our grandparents to play an important role in moulding our character. We have a lot to learn from their knowledge which cannot be learnt from any books. All they want from us is to devote time to them and interchange pleasantry.

Grandparents lift our spirits when we feel low. They bring back a smile on our face. They teach us good values and make us a better person. Grandparents make a huge change in one’s life.

I consider them as my blessings and want my kids to feel the same.
