Grandparents and grandchildren

 

Grandparents have lived through many things, sometimes very hard things.  Often, their lives have been very difficult.

They worked tirelessly to raise their families. They have educated their kids and done a lot more.

And now, when they could live in peace and do what they like, like hiking, go to recreation centers or lying on the couch with a blanket to watch TV, they cannot do it because they have to raise their grandchildren.

That is the last thing they needed. But I believe they like doing it because when they were young they could not spend enough time with their children and can now they can be with their ​​grandchildren. Hence the phrase that often “grandparents can be as much a child as their grandchildren.”

Grandparents and grandchildren share many things.

Grandparents do all those things parents can’t do because they are working to support their family. They take the kids to school, pick them up with snacks, prepare dinner and indulge them all that parents won’t let them do, but “this is what grandparents are for, isn’t it?”.

They also transmit many experiences and values.

Sometimes we rely more on the grandparents, because we spend more hours with them, than with our parents.

I just have to say that for me, my grandmother, is like a second mother.

  1. Yo creo que los abuelos debemos ser PERSONAS con el derecho de hacer con ntro. tiempo lo que nos apetezca, sin obligaciones que no deseemos. Si embargo tambien debemos ser BOMBEROS, es decir ir ayudar cuando ntras. familias nos necesitan, no por obligacion, sino por amor y placer, y el principal es cuidar, escuchar, ayudar, enseñar ect., a ntros. nietos, que placer mas maravilloso el pensar que algun dia ntros. nietos nos recordaran, por los buenos momentos que han pasado con nosotros, sus confidencias, sus inquietudes, las preguntas que no se atrevieron a hacer a sus padres. Todo esto es lo que te permite superar el cansancio de toda la actividad que tenemos los abuelos con muchos años.

  2. Lo que si es cierto que muchas de las veces el papel que algunos padres no hacen lo suelen hacer nuestros abuelos. Por eso considero que muchos deberian aprender de nuestras personas mayores por que no todo el mundo suelen tener la experiencia que a ellos les sobra son a ellos los que les debemos nustras vidas.
