Good Grandparents #10

10. Has a piece of candy in their purse or pocket.

I don’t carry around candy. But I had a grandfather that did.

The whole idea of this thought is that grandparents are there to bring sweetness to life.

Being a grandparent is a gift to give and should be the icing on the cake of a life well lived. Be that person that the kids will come to because you are a treat to be with.

Here is the entire list:

A good grandparent

  1. Is first a good parent.
  2. Is part of the family system.
  3. Is a refuge for the kids and parents.
  4. Respects the parent’s rules.
  5. Is wise.
  6. Is not afraid to be playful.
  7. Takes the time to listen
  8. Doesn’t give advice unless it is sought
  9. Asks questions
  10. Has a piece of candy in their purse or pocket
