When grandparents are involved in parenting roles, whether temporarily, full time, or with a parent, they’ll find many joys:

  • Looking at the world through the eyes of a child again.
  • Finding flowers wild and in gardens
  • Taking walks at a child’s pace
  • Collecting stones to skip on the water
  • Finding awe in a bird building its nest
  • Struggling through math homework and seeing the child’s face light up when he “gets it.”
  • Learning computer skills because grandchildren expect you to be up to date
  • Experiencing birthday parties, putting up a Christmas tree, capturing leprechauns on St. Patrick’s Day, coloring eggs at Easter,  planning  surprises and so much more.
