Blessed are the kids who get the loving grace of grandparents. I remember my growing up days was completely bereft of care and warmth of grandparents. My maternal grandparents lived in Odisha and paternal grandparents somehow always remained preoccupied. But I still do believe that presence of grandparents is very essential for quality upbringing of a child.
I feel happiest when I see my niece bonding so well with her ‘Nani’ & ‘Nana’. My niece is a happy child with least tantrums; she is still away from menace of gadgets, she hardly watches television, and the best part is she doesn’t complaint. She spends her spare time going to the dance class, playing badminton, painting/drawing or having a book reading session with her granny.
No doubt a child always remains closest to his or her parents but positive influence of grandparents is must for a healthy environment. They fulfill all the gaps which we as parents may sometimes fail to provide due to busy lifestyles, strenuous working hours, etc. Though I am not a parent yet but I see that coming generation is very temperamental. They severely lack in patience. And so they are required to be handled with care, a little extra effort can shape them up very well. The prudence, unconditional love and effortless nurturing skills of grandparents provide an abode where values and virtues thrive.
I pity on people who consider aging parents or grandparents as a burden. In fact they are the essence of a happy family. Their blessings and countless pearls of wisdom can enhance the young generation and lift them from the pool of darkness.
