How to Nurture a Healthy Relation with your Grandchildren

By Osa Subscribe to RSS | January 24th 2012 | Views:

Grandparents have always been a source of encouragement for children. The relation developed between grandparents and their grandchildren is a wonderful relationship. When we were kids, our grandma used to tell us fairy tales and stories that had morals at the end. After telling us those stories, they used to provide us with such lessons that are still the path illuminating guidelines for us. But with the rapid changes in the world, this relation has also been changed. Now most of the families in metros are nuclear one.

These families mostly comprises of the parents and their kids only. When moms and dads go out for job, children often face loneliness with the four walls of their house. This in turn results in attracting children to be a part of wrong friend circle. Grandparents generally become play mates to most of the children. So when children have grand parents in their houses, it works as glue for them to be at home only. Though there is a generation’s gap between kids and their grandparents, but it’s often noticed that children can easily gel up with their grandmas or grandpas. This gelling up is a mental feed for children because both the parties can exchange their feelings freely with each other.

The bond that develops between grandparents and their grand kids always come out to be beneficial for both of them. In our childhood days, we learn the basic moral values and ways of our life from the grandparents only. In the grandparents, we find a trusted person to learn from, play with and rely on. Kids with single parents often noticed to be closer with their grandma or grandpa. Parents also become benefited from this loving bond.

But kids often don’t get close to anyone easily. Nurturing a healthy bond between two generations require a lot of patient and time. The following tips may help in the healthy nurturing of this bond:-

• Don’t be a ruler while dealing with your grandchild. They should not feel that someone is ruling their personality. Let them feel free to share their beliefs, ideas and though with you

• In India it is said that the road to the heart goes though the stomach. So cooking the favorite dish for your grandchild can be a good idea to develop a close bond with them

• Kids are always curious about things and actions that they come across. This is the reason why they keep on asking things to their elders. Thus grandparents should always act as an path illuminator and guide to their grandchdren

• Go on a vacation together, with or without the kids' parents. Whether you go on a cruise, to the beach, camping, or just do local sight-seeing, traveling and exploring give grandparents and grandkids time to talk and get to know each other

• Try to get involved in the activities of your grandchild. They should develop a feeling that someone is there to support and protect them.

Folks on the verge of becoming grandparents can look forward to a wide range of activities with their grandchildren, from crafts and hobbies to reading, sports, and taking part in family traditions.
