Grandparents are a treasure in the family. Grandparents can play many important roles in the lives of their beloved young children. They are trusted advisors for their adult children who are now parents themselves. For many families, grandparents provide regular child care. In some cases, they are primary caregivers to their grandkids. And whether they live nearby or stay in touch from afar, the love and emotional closeness that grandparents provide makes a big, positive impact on their grandchild’s healthy development.
This Grandparents Day is an opportunity to connect with older loved ones and share a meal, read a book, play a game, have a yarn or simply take the time to learn more about our shared history.
It’s a day to say ‘thank you’ to all grandparents for their care and support and for sharing their knowledge, experience and traditions with younger generations.
