Lessons in Grandparenting
Here are a few excerpts from among many, many lessons presented:
"In fact, it appears that we humans are at our unhappiest in our late thirties and forties. We bottom out in our early fifties, then keep getting happier through our sixties and seventies and even beyond, until disability kicks in."
"Relationships with grandfathers usually grow stronger as children age. Kids tend to prefer Gramma at first, but then things even out."
"It reminds me me of something Tom Brokaw said: 'For parents, bribery is a white-collar crime; for grandparents, it's a business plan!' "
"I used to think life had four necessities: food, oxygen, love and friendship. Now I know there's a fifth: purpose."
