Grandparent’s Day: When Your Child Scores, Everyone Wins! A Must-Read for Parents!

Parents: the bases are loaded with another opportunity to teach your child about love, respect and the importance of family – by honoring Gran and Gramps bigtime! Even if your child is too young to understand, he or she can feel. We’re never too young or old to know that being kind is its own reward. We feel kind inside.

Have you noticed that these opportunities for learning and loving keep just on coming? You can keep whacking 'em out day after day, coaching your kids on potty training, friendship, romance, keeping their individuality. You are your kids' toughest critic, their greatest advocate. Could any role be more fulfilling? More difficult? More divine?

But back to the game. With a little planning, you can help kids show Grandpa and Grandma that they’re the real MVPs. They win. Kids wins. But you’re the biggest winner of them all.

Happy Grandparent's Day!
