Becoming a grandparent

Becoming a grandparent

The birth of a grandchild often changes the relationships within the family. If the grandparents are close to their children, chances are they will also form a close bond to their grandchildren – and vice versa. Every newborn child is a chance to deepen the bond between parents and grandparents. Both can relive the good times they had when they were younger. Today, grandparents and grandchildren have more years together than ever before. Grandparents today are often fit and healthy, and enjoy many activities with their grandchildren. It is very important that younger and older people spend time together. A treasure trove of shared experiences will shape the way one generation thinks about the other. The relationship between the generations is dynamic and ever-changing. Children grow up to become adults, parents, grandparents and maybe even great-grandparents.
