3 Special Things Grandchildren Can Learn From Their Grandparents

It’s a special relationship between a grandchild and a grandparent. Grandparents are the authority figure. They provide unconditional love to their grandchildren. Along with the unconditional love, their experience and time on this Earth helps future generations move forward with the confidence that they’ll be okay during daily struggles. Nevertheless, our grandparents have a unique part in the lives of our future generations.

A New Skill Set

As grandchildren are growing up, senior citizens have a skill set that they can learn from. These skills include gardening, sewing, farming, and woodworking. Unfortunately, these are the lost arts in today’s generation. These are great things to pass to grandchildren especially because they are not commonly taught today.

Furthermore, grandparents learn more throughout their lifetime that prove helpful. They have been on the planet longer and have learned through experience how to handle certain tasks. For instance, someone who grew up in the Great Depression, learned never to waste anything and save money. These are important values that carry over to today.

Emotional Support

Grandparents are incredible listeners. Throughout my younger years, I was fortunate enough to have grandparents that understood patience and compassion. The most invaluable part was their experience on how to handle situations. They serve as an impartial source that can help pick the right choice in critical life moments.

History

Those who don’t know their history are doomed to repeat it. History continues to be part of education because it brings value to the future. While kids may learn history in their school books or from old pictures, they may find it interesting to learn from someone who lived it. Children learn more from those who experienced real-live events and learn to comprehend it in an emotional level versus a practical one.

Remembrance 9-11-2001

Where were you on this day? For some, it was an amazing day filled with opportunities. For others, they barely remember it. Those born after 9/11 look at images in history books and ponder at the tragedy. Finally, for many others, it was the last day they would see their loved one or walk on this earth.

The experiences of that day are different for everyone. It provokes a sense of mystery behind why thousands had lost their lives in a span of a couple of hours. However, the dark message is the same. Tragedy can rattle our hearts. It can make us feel unsafe. We may be numb to the pain. As cliche as it seems, it is important to not take things for granted and always appreciate what is around you.

Today is a day of remembrance. It was eighteen years ago that 3000 people lost their lives. While some of us don’t want to think about the tragedy, it is a sign of love and respect for those who lost their lives. The best thing we can do is to continue to do our best in this life while supporting those in need. 9/11 was a day that brought the nation together in the midst of chaos.

Nevertheless, it is days like these that we give thanks to another day. Their souls will forever be in our memories.

E & S Family shows its respect and remembrance for the tragedy that happened. Our hearts are with the families who continue to suffer to this day. Though we cannot repair what happened, we can hope to bring a little bit of light to the darkness of the day.

It’s actually more like 90% of Americans prefer to age at home. As more seniors are realizing that they need help and assistance, home health aides assist with basic tasks. People with disabilities have the option of requesting help after hospitalization. The good news is that home care based help is less expensive. Since our nation is experience a shortage of health care workers, home health care is the answer. According to Public Pulse, home care provides quality care at the best price.

This takes into consideration that most home health aides can be hired for a couple hours at a time. Families have more flexibility with how they can schedule a caregiver. Additionally, home health aides are an affordable option. It is a better option for the Federal government as well. Medicaid is reimbursing for the home health aide support services.
