Grand, very grand parents!
Young-at-heart. The senior players.
Hoping on a Monday that it will be Friday soon is a clear case of “wishing your life away”.
This is about your mum and dad ...
You cherish your parents' strong ties with your children, you are grateful for the support they can give and for the love that is between them. Your parents also have a great time in your kids' company, they learn lots of new things and keep up to date with what moves and interests the young generation.
But there is much more to this relationship:
What will remain with your children forever is their early perception of maturity and eventually of old age - your parents have the power to shape their perspective!
Experience, knowledge, physical and mental powers and of course age itself - all these things can only be as great as the personality behind it.
Kids who grow up in positively challenging dialogue with older generations develop empathy and interest in others sooner, are less driven by fashions and trends, ask more questions and pay more attention to social and political issues.
This is just as valid for those who start counting the years and months towards retirement by the time they’re in their late forties!
Artists like conductors, painters, authors or actors are known to carry on as long as possible, so are many scientists. They don’t have to work and it is not work - not in the tedious sense - they long to follow their interest and passion.
We want young people to find a positive approach to all age groups they will encounter and go through themselves.
We want to enable them to make their Tuesdays as good as their Sundays, to make their lives as fulfilling at 77 as they are exciting when they are sweet seventeen.
“Don’t go wishing your life away!”
Our children's grandmas and grandpas are role models.
Their active involvement is invaluable. K
Grandparents are first and foremost smart, experienced folks who know a lot. To be a care giver to grand-children is not their god-given duty, it is a favour they grant us and a joy they allow themselves.
