“Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.”- said Eleanor Roosevelt, former first lady of the United States.
Grandparents are very valuable for the development of our children, and any child that has a grandparent is blessed. Grandmas are especially the best thing that we have taking care of our grandkids and loving them more than their own children.
Why grandparents love their grandchildren more than their children?
The reason for that may be the old age itself when people become mellower and less uptight. Plus, if they are retired they have more free time than they did with their own children with whom they have most likely missed a lot. They tend to disregard certain things in their grandkids’ behavior which was almost impossible with their children. Now, they do not have to be the bad guys unlike the parents who have to be firm in the education of their children.
The children will still continue to love their parents although they have to obey certain rules. They will love their grandparents as well, but this love must be earned and because of that grandparents have to work as hard as they can. Because of that the grandparents indulge the wishes of their grandchildren and act protectively in front of their parents.
Probably the grandparents are more driven in being better grandparents because they believe that they have done some mistakes with their children, and that this is a second chance to correct them.
No matter what is the reason children are truly blessed if they have a loving grandparent, especially a cute grandma who will be there for them any time and at any cost.
