Grandchildren quotes sparkle with the adoration, joy and love that comes with either raising grandchildren by grandparents or by the shared family relationships of providing guidance, love and encouragement.
Not all children have the advantage of doting grandparents but those that do are often rewarded with additional caring and a legacy of fondness. Grandchildren, as expressed by many of the following authors, show how much it is seen by grandparents
as not only a privilege but an esteemed responsibility to have a major role in the raising of the next generation of parents.
The modeling of behavior by grandparents can play a significant role in many facets of life including the attitudes of giving and sharing in the many ups and downs of life. It is our hope that you will identify with or understand more fully the critical role you may have in the upbringing of a grandchild.
May these grandchildren quotes remind you how special these children are and of the positive impact they have on our lives.
The relationships we forge with our grandchildren will have an added dimension because we’ve got the best of both worlds: a fascinating foot in the past and a vibrant presence in the here and now. It’s fantastic.
