GRANDPARENTS: What Grandchildren Gain From Their Grandparents

There are clear advantages for children whose grandparents are involved in their lives. In fact, studies show that children whose grandparents play a role in their lives are less likely to suffer from depression and anxiety. They are also more likely to feel confident in themselves and comfortable trying new things. This is probably due to the love, affection, and encouragement that grandparents generally bestow on their grandkids.

Grandparents have a unique perspective on time and the value of family.
