Grandparents Day was September 8th!
We love our grandparents for how they contribute to our lives in the present. But have you ever taken the time to learn about their past? Ask a grandparent to tell a few stories from years gone by. You’ll learn something new and participate in one of the most valuable experiences our grandparents can give us—wisdom passed down through the ages. Plus, it will help you understand where they’re coming from. Some of their entrenched views will be explained by learning about the environment in which they grew up.
National Grandparents Day can also be about supporting and appreciating the elderly who live in nursing homes who may not have any family living nearby. Bake a batch of cookies and take them to your local nursing home. Spend some time chatting with the residents and munching on cookies together. Fostering relationships between children and elders will bring greater opportunities to learn new skills from the different generations.
