With age comes wisdom, and as grandparents, Lord knows we have the years under our belts! 😉
All of our life experiences have led to us being in the position to pass down some of this knowledge to the next generation — It is our duty and we are more than happy to abide by it! But what are some good conversation starters and things that the grandchildren would actually love to learn from Grandma and Grandpa? Check out the list below:
Learning about things that happened in the past from someone who experienced it can be a lot more interesting than learning from a school textbook. If the event has a connection to their beloved grandma, they will be all ears!
New skill set
You are now the master of being able to pass on a new skill set! Whether it be crafting, sewing, baking, or gardening, these are things that aren’t commonly taught anymore and Grandma has all of the tools necessary.
When it comes to wanting advice or learning life lessons, it may be easier for the young ones to come to you rather than their parents. There’s less fear of backlash, and with your experience they know you’ll be understanding.
Who better to teach them about their family’s history? Get out those old black-and-white photos and show them some unknown relatives and allow that family tree in their brain to grow!
One of life’s most important virtues. The kids will better learn how to listen and understand what others tell them just from being interested in your stories. This will set them up for future success. After all, we have two ears and only one mouth! 😉
Nothing is more satisfying than seeing the grandchildren succeed in life, so do your part in helping them and watch them grow. Hope these pointers helped!
