Grandparenting literacy is a privilege we can enjoy with or without grandchildren nearby
Grandparents Day is this Sunday, Sept. 8, and it isn’t just a retail event. Grandparenting literacy is a privilege we can enjoy even if we never had children or if our grandchildren are far away.
In our whirlwind world parenting a literate child is challenging, fun, and exciting. Grandparenting a literate child may be even more interesting and fun when you don’t have the constant responsibility of caring for the child. You have multiple opportunities to read books and read them again and again. You find you have more patience with your grandchildren to take them to museums, various exhibits, and play literate travel games, plus much more.
Today, because of longer life spans, we have opportunities to work with great-grandchildren. My great-grandmother, whom I called “Aunt Ma,” lived to be an active 104 and she made many impacts on my life. Her role model alone of taking care of others at her age left permanent good memories.
