Grandparents Role Today vs Yesterday - What This Means To YOU?
Last Update: April 12, 2018
Most people are reluctant to change their way
of doing things because they have developed
concrete beliefs that they know best. However,
it should be pointed out that with changing times, new methods are sometimes required.
Due to the fast moving changes being made
on a daily basis, the need to adapt is almost
vital to insure a stable environment for all.
This is where the grandparents are vital in
the family dynamic that could shape a
grandchild's future relationship with all
concerned. Many factors have to be considered in coming up with a viable solution
to overcome possible conflicts caused by the
1. Grandkids ages
2. Grandparents customs/beliefs
3. Proximity to each other
4. Grandparents/parents relationship
5. Willingness to adapt to current times
6. Ability to reconcile different methods
7. Recognition of Parental Authority
To facilitate an environment that encompasses
all the necessary elements required to provide
tranquility within this extended family structure, it is mandatory that EVERYONE be
on the same page. This requires a "give" and
"take" concession that all parties may not agree with, but realize that is what it takes!
With the times changing so rapidly, it is no
wonder that people are scratching their heads
and asking, "Whatever happened to the Good
Old Days?" It is not a coincidence that people
are frustrated and remember the olden days
when life was less stressful and less complicated. Society has evolved to today's
lifestyle and has concluded that survival
requires a change in attitude.
In my opinion, this illustrates how the
interactions within the Wealthy Affiliate
Community are beneficial to all members. The
membership consists of individuals of
different: Cultures, Continents, Religions,
Races, Genders and various backgrounds
that are participating together heading toward
a common goal. These interactions between
WA members demonstrate how effective they
can be. Thus, the life-lessons learned here
are applicable to the subject of this Blog Post.
Therefore, by utilizing the training provided
within WA, interacting with members and
communicating the lessons learned to your
audience, you are utilizing the Pay-it-Forward
concept as a tool to educate others.
In summary, no one individual can solve the
difficult times facing society today. However,
if each of us, does their small part, it should
result in a better world for our family to thrive
and our grandchildren excel!
