Children Need Grandparents

Grandparents play a vital role in the cognitive, behavioral, and social development of a young
person. There is a line in an African song: “When an old person dies, a library burns down.”
What is lost is family history, the wisdom gained from a life filled with rich experiences, and the
boundless love and acceptance that grandparents can shower on their grandchildren. Whether
you are a surrogate or a grandparent that lives far away or close by, understand better the
meaning of your role and learn ways to be even more effective.
